The increased reliance upon computers, large and small, has led to concerns about their pervasive role in our lives.

  • Is there a difference between in person communication and online communication? 
  • What is FOMO and how does it affect sleep and mental health?
  • How does screen time affect cognitive, language, and emotional development of very young brains? 
  • What effect do video games have upon developing brains? 
  • Do parents need to set limits? Do kids need to set limits? Why? 

Now that the World Health Organization has declared video gaming disorder a mental health condition, what is at stake in unlimited screen time?

Dr. Hilarie Cash is co-founder and Chief Clinical Officer for reSTART Life, PLLC, a residential program (first in the US or Canada) designed explicitly for adults and adolescents who are experiencing serious problems because of addiction to the Internet and video games.
