Introducing the Mindset project

Combating gaming disorder among youth

The MINDSET project – implemented by a consortium of 8 partners from France, Poland, Germany, Ireland, Austria, Cyprus, Portugal and Greece – aims to prepare youth organisations and youth workers to identify the early signs and prevent the development of gaming disorder among youth.

Alongside this primary goal, we will also promote active citizenship, young people’s sense of initiative and youth entrepreneurship including social entrepreneurship, but also inclusion and diversity in all fields of education, training, youth and sport.

In 2018, gaming disorder was officially considered a mental disorder that limits social interaction and reduces the quality of skills necessary to perform them. Being a relatively new mental health issue, it’s still lacking much information on how to identify and tackle it.

Because of this, youth workers and families are unable to help young

people aected by this disorder, thus, MINDSET is focused on providing

tools, methodologies and objective ways to enable youth workers to take necessary actions to improve their services.

Considering the reality involving gaming disorder, MINDSET has the

following main objectives:

– Raise awareness about the negative eects of excessive gaming;

– Provide youth workers and youth organizations with the knowledge to recognise the signs of gaming disorder, distinguishing it from normal gaming behaviour;

– Equip youth workers with the tools to identify early signs and

prevent gaming disorder;

– Promote the development of new policies for the identication

and prevention of gaming disorder.
