Helping Teenagers Beat Gaming Addiction

So many teenagers today have access to games consoles, and many of them regularly play games for long hours; sometimes even suffering from gaming addiction. This seems normal for today’s society, but perhaps parents need to be more aware of the adverse effects that excessive gaming can have on their children.
Kooth is a transformational digital mental health support service. It gives children and young people easy access to an online community of peers and a team of experienced counsellors. Access is free of the typical barriers to support: no waiting lists, no thresholds, no cost and complete anonymity.
