Abstract

Measures to be taken for a healthy society involve elimination of the negative effects that affect the health of individuals. Adolescents adversely affecting the health of the community form a part of various studies on Internet addiction. The Internet, which has emerged to increase communication and to reach information more easily, has brought both psychological and physical problems, together with the rapid increase in usage. Mental concerns seem to be the main focus of these problems. Psychological problems such as lack of self-esteem, social anxiety levels and high aggressive behaviours can be seen.
