dc.description.abstractThe aim of this exploratory study was to gain a deeper understanding and to expand upon the literature of the relationship between the time spent using technological devices and mental health (depression, stress and anxiety) as well as coping and addictive behaviour. A quantitative, correlational coefficient survey approach was utilized. A convenience sample of 122 (M= 50, F=72 ) participants completed four self-reported questionnaires: The Bergen Facebook Addiction Scale (BFAS), The Depression, Anxiety, Stress Scale (DASS), The Brief Cope, The General Health Questionnaire (GHQ). Analysis of the data showed that there was a positive, significant correlation between time spent on tech devices and addictive behaviour. There was no significant correlation between the time spent interacting with others and mental health. There was no significant correlation between the time spent on devices and mental health. Results had shown there to be a significant correlation between coping strategies mental health and addictive behaviour.en
