P35. The Relationship Between Problematic Internet Use, Smartphone Addiction, and Depression and Anxiety Among a Diverse Sample of College Students
There is limited research on Problematic Internet Use (PIU), Smartphone Addiction (SA), and health outcomes in U.S. college populations. Studies investigating the association between PIU, SA, and health suggest mental health symptomology needs further investigation. We examined the prevalence of PIU and SA in a diverse sample of 451 California college students. We also explored whether there is an association between PIU, SA and depression and anxiety.
