Sleep Hygiene Handout

The consequences of poor sleep are far-reaching. Brain functioning slows down, memory is impaired, the frequency of accidents increases, stress rises, and there are a number of associated health issues such as weight gain and increased blood pressure. In other words: sleep is important!

Insomnia and other sleep issues are common among those with mental illness, and their correction can be a key part of recovery. Use the Sleep Hygiene Handout to educate your clients about basic sleep tips. We suggest discussing current impediments to a good night's sleep during session, and using this handout as a take-home reminder.
