Transgenderism No Longer A Mental Illness

Transgenderism No Longer A Mental Illness

Experts worldwide are urging caution regarding the World Health Organization's proposed "gaming disorder" as it may lead to misdiagnosis of real mental health conditions.

WHO's ICD was last updated in 1990 and its new edition, ICD-11, listed gaming disorder as a serious health condition that needs to be monitored. There's still disagreement whether gaming disorders exist at all, but rehab facilities and treatment programs specifically for video game addiction are slowly cropping up around the United States.

It certainly looks like the disorder is being described by people who are not entirely familiar with video games.

It added that a gaming disorder can be manifested if a person prioritizes gaming "to the extent that gaming takes precedence over other life interests and daily activities" and it continues to escalate "despite the occurrence of negative consequences".

The disorder affects no more than 3 percent of gamers, the Associated Press reported, with some estimates as low as one percent.

Hazardous gaming refers to a pattern of gaming, either online or offline that appreciably increases the risk of harmful physical or mental health consequences to the individual or to others around this individual.

While treatment for gaming disorder is in its early stages, Saxena says the "message for parents, colleagues, and friends" is to avoid the stigma surrounding the issue and says addicts should be able to seek professional help. "Very large numbers of people play games on- and off-line", the Department of Health & Social Care told Eurogamer.

Due to this, the NHS, which is the Health Service in the United Kingdom, will be treating people who have this condition.

The ICD 11 also introduced the related condition of Hazardous gaming.

"Given the gravity of diagnostic classification and its wider social impact, we urge our colleagues at World Health Organization to err on the side of caution for now and postpone the formalisation", they said in a study reviewing academic literature.

Most of the medical profession is against the Gaming Disorder inclusion; two papers opposing the proposal having already been released. Gambling disorder was in ICD-10, but gaming disorder relates to "digital or video gaming".

WHO's latest catalogue also has a new chapter on traditional medicine, which previously went unmentioned, despite being used by millions of people around the world. For example, say that your child has to do their homework first and/or get out and play for an hour before they're allowed to game.
