The Importance of Sleep

Sleep is as essential to our health as eating, drinking, and breathing. It allows our bodies to repair themselves enough sleep and our brains to consolidate memories and process information. Poor sleep is linked to physical and mental health disorders and other sleep problems, such as heart disease and a weakened immune system, and mental health disorders and other sleep problems persist with disturbed sleep, such as anxiety, chronic insomnia disorder, and depression.

How Sleep Impacts Mental Health

Sleep and mental health are closely intertwined. Disruptions in the sleep schedule can be a cause of other serious health problems, sleep disorders, and mental health problems: 


Insomnia and other sleep disturbances are commonly found in those with depression. The relationship is often bidirectional, where sleep problems can lead to depression, and depression can make it more challenging to have sleep problems.


Difficulty sleeping can increase stress, which can affect sleep and, in turn, can interfere with sleep, creating a vicious cycle of anxiety and sleep issues.

Bipolar Disorder

Both phases of bipolar disorder, manic and depressive, can be accompanied by significant sleep issues, from insomnia during manic episodes to hypersomnia during depressive phases.


Sleep problems in older adults and individuals with ADHD are common and include resistance to going to bed, difficulty falling asleep, and restless sleep.

The Need for Immediate Intervention

Common Sleep Disorders

Several sleep disorders can impact mental health, including sound sleep and insomnia, which is the difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep. Insomnia can exacerbate symptoms of existing mental health conditions.

Sleep Apnea is a severe disorder in which breathing repeatedly stops and starts during sleep. This leads to fragmented, non-restorative sleep, which can affect mood and energy levels.

Restless Legs Syndrome (RLS) is an urge to move the legs that can interfere with falling and staying asleep and significantly impact sleep quality.
