Sleep is as essential to our health as eating, drinking, and breathing. Though many of us are sleep-deprived, those of us with mental health conditions are more likely to feel the impact of less sleep—and sleep problems tend to affect upwards of 80% of patients in psychiatric practices.
How can we treat sleep disorders and mental health conditions? Are there ways to improve our quality of life through a good night’s sleep? And what can science show us about how our mental health is affected by how we’re sleeping?
John Winkelman, MD, PhD, explains the relationship between sleep disorders and our brains, provides a look into the impact of our sleep cycles, and answers audience questions about sleep and mental health.
