We have people who have experienced another way of living without the crowds and the confrontation with society and who will be nostalgic for this confinement. Some even decided to change their lives “, explains Professor Amine Benyamina, head of the psychiatric department of Paul-Brousse Hospital in Villejuif (Val-de-Marne).
“What is certain is that most addictions have been increased. Vulnerability factors have been expressed and perhaps part of the population will need care. There is still tracking work “, notes the professor on Sunday 10 but on Franceinfo.
“There has been overconsumption of screens, for sure, but what is quite funny is that it is thanks to the digitization of society that teachers have been able to teach “, he says. “Now we have to find a normal rhythm. Consuming digital doesn't make people addicted. Addiction to digital is a loss of freedom to abstain, which is not the case for most people “, concludes Amine Benyamina.
