DAILY INTERNET USE TIME COULD ASSIST IN SCREENING OF PROBLEMATIC INTERNET USE

Our recent study has shown that the Internet use time of 190 mins/day or more, total physical weekly activity of 60 mins or less, and sleeping 6 hours or less could be parameters for use to screen university students for problematic Internet use (PIU).

Assessment of daily internet use time could assist in periodic screening of students at-risk of problematic internet use. This would help in early detection and referral to an appropriate mental health expert for further assessment and management.
