In the historical development of the Construct of Internet Addiction since 1996, Problematic Internet Use has been used as the indicator of pathological internet usage. This study aimed to assess the relationship of Problematic Internet Use with Psychological Factors such as Psychological Resilience, Perceived Stress, and Subjective Happiness among Indian College Level Young Adults across a Private University in Uttar Pradesh, India. Using a Cross-sectional Correlational Design and a Purposive Sampling Design the study sampled 138 Students and administered the appropriate psychometric tests to collect the data. Pearson’s Correlation coefficients revealed Problematic Internet Use to have a positive relationship with Perceived Stress, and a negative relationship with Psychological Resilience and Subjective Happiness. Implying that these factors contribute towards indicating the scope of Community Health Research in the Digital Age.
