The Relationship Between Video Games and Anxiety

Do video games cause anxiety? This is a common question without an easy yes-or-no answer.

This means that, rather than having a cause-and-effect relationship, the two relate and contribute to each other.

The hope is that by giving a label to a set of problematic behaviors, medical professionals—from doctors to insurance providers—can more readily identify and treat them.
