Clinic for Interactive Media and Internet Disorders (CIMAID)
The Clinic for Interactive Media and Internet Disorders (CIMAID) is a multidisciplinary team led by Michael Rich, MD, MPH and Mike Tsappis, MD. We have been evaluating and treating increasing numbers of children, adolescents, and young adults in our clinic whose excessive online activities have caused problems with sleep, school, social functioning, and various aspects of physical and mental health. The CIMAID team can help you address and reduce the negative consequences of Problematic Interactive Media Use (PIMU), while helping the children, adolescents, and young adults in your life adopt and sustain healthy lifestyles and behaviors.
If you are a clinician and would like to make a referral, please contact us at 617-355-9447 or firstname.lastname@example.org
If you or your organization are interested in learning how to evaluate, diagnose, and treat individuals suffering from PIMU, contact us to learn more about our training program. We can be reached by phone at 617-355-9447 or by email at email@example.com
The Family Media Plan, created by the American Academy of Pediatrics, is an easy-to-use online tool that clinicians can share with parents and caregivers, to help them create a customized plan about media use.
The Digital Wellness Lab (formerly the Center on Media and Child Health) at Boston Children’s Hospital provides evidence-based information and tips for parents about how media can affect the health and well-being of children and teens.
