Fact Sheet in Focus

Depression and sleep
Important Things to Know About Depression and Sleep:

People with depression often do not sleep well; those who suffer from insomnia or sleeping problems have a higher risk of depression; not all people with depression have sleeping problems and not all those with sleeping problems have depression; if sleep can be improved, this may help the depression; being exposed to bright light (outdoor or artificial) can help with both sleep problems and depression.

Purchase trifold brochures


The Foundation has developed this trifold version of its information sheets for use in your reception area, clinic or for promotional purposes, so that your patients can take some information home to read about their sleep disorder.

You can purchase these brochures at very reasonable prices and any proceeds are used to develop more sleep information resources.
