Exploring mediational roles for self-stigma in associations between types of problematic use of internet and psychological distress in youth with ADHD

CONCLUSIONS AND IMPLICATIONS: This study expands the extant literature by revealing that self-stigma mediates the association between specific forms of PUI and psychological distress in adolescents with ADHD. Interventions aimed at reducing self-stigma and PUI, particularly PSMU and PSPU, may help decrease psychological distress among adolescents with ADHD.
