What is video gaming addiction?
Video gaming addiction is clinically recognised by the World Health Organisation (WHO) as “Gaming Disorder” where video games take priority over one’s life over other important activities, with a loss of control and negative consequences such as school refusal, violence, poor attention and concentration, depression and anxiety. Assessment and management plans for Australians are now available.
Hi, my name is Dr Huu Kim Le (most people call me Kim).
I am an Australian Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist, specialising in gaming disorder. I can work with your GP by providing a comprehensive psychiatric assessment and management plan. Follow up sessions can also be arranged. I provide this service to people of all ages.
I also provide a child and youth telehealth psychiatrist service for residents anywhere in Australia, up to the age of 25.
SBS documentary “Are You Addicted To Technology?”
Having worked and investigated gaming addiction clinics in Asia, I took the plunge and delivered a TEDx speech in 2015 in front of 600 people at Adelaide Town Hall. Click this YouTube link to check it out.
Fast-forward 6 years later, during the pandemic of 2020, I was lucky enough to film a documentary film “Are You Addicted To Technology?” (AYATT) to be released online on 21st April 2021 on SBS On Demand.
