In a press release this week, the World Health Organization announced that burnout is included in the 11th Revision of the International Classification of Diseases (ICD-11), a handbook that provides a guideline for medical providers when making a diagnosis.
According to the World Health Organization, doctors can issue a diagnosis of burnout if a patient exhibits three symptoms: feeling depleted of energy or exhausted; feeling mentally distanced from or cynical about one's job; and problems getting one's job done successfully.
The ICD-11, which is to take effect in January 2022, contains several other additions, including classification of "compulsive sexual behaviour" as a mental disorder, although it stops short of lumping the condition together with addictive behaviours. Written permission must be obtained before reprint in online or print media.
Burnout can be found in the handbook's section on problems related to employment and unemployment. Health professionals should also first rule out mood and anxiety disorders before making this diagnosis. The organization first added "Gaming Disorder" to its ICD-11 beta list back in 2017, having looked at research on the topic as far back as 1990.

In response, games industry representatives including the ESA and UKIE have stated that the WHO's evidence to support gaming disorder is insufficient.
According to WHO's classification, video gaming's tendency to be "a pattern of persistent or recurrent gaming behavior [that] takes precedence over other life interests", has pushed it into the addiction category. You may have an actual medical condition.
In most cases, a person is diagnosed with gaming disorder after showing symptoms for at least 12 months, according to the WHO.
