ABSTRACT:
This study aimed to investigate the relationship between internet addiction and psychosocial issues among college students in selected colleges. To assess this correlation, the researchers employed two rating scales, one for measuring the level of internet addiction and another for assessing the level of psychosocial well-being. These tools were validated by experts in the fields of nursing and psychiatry, with a high reliability score of r=0.9, determined using suitable formulas. The research began with a pilot study involving 10 participants, and the collected data were subjected to both descriptive and inferential statistical analyses, which were then interpreted based on the study's objectives and hypotheses. The majority of the sample (61.43%) fell within the age group of 21-22 years, while the remaining participants were distributed as follows: 17.14% in the 18-20 age group and 21.43% above 22 years of age. In terms of internet addiction, 60% of the participants exhibited "mild internet addiction," with 25.71% classified as having "moderate internet addiction," and the remaining 14.29% showing "no internet addiction”. Regarding psychosocial problems, 51.43% of the samples had "mild psychosocial problems," while 42.86% displayed "no noticeable psychosocial problems," and the remaining 5.71% exhibited "moderate psychosocial problems.". **Name of colleges not mentioned as a part of maintaining privacy.
