This week's BWB Extra continues our conversation with former gamer and founder of Catalyst E-Sports Solutions, Drew Holt-Kentwell who is also a qualified mental health counsellor in Singapore and runs a youth charity which focuses on gaming and device addiction and general wellness issues that youths face in Singapore.
Drew unpacks the reality of addiction and mental health issues in gaming where he talks about the difference between E-Sports and gaming, what it's like to be a professional E-Sports player in the industry, the range of effects too much gaming can have on a person's health as well as talk about the counselling work he does to help tackle addiction.
Do professional gamers suffer from mental health problems? who should police gaming? is it all bad or are there any benefits? it's all up for discussion.
