Sleepless? Techniques for when counting sheep isn’t working

Sleeplessness is regarded as the most common mental health symptom experienced and these websites are a good source of information. One of these days I will get round to summarising the common threads.

Mathew Walker’s 2018 book on the science of sleep is frequently applauded although I found it a rather bleak read and short on what can help.

1 One for the teenagers from the NHS

2 The Royal College of Psychiatrists discuss sleep problems in childhood and adolescence: for parents and carers

3 Another helpful leaflet from the NHS on how to get to sleep

4 The Mental Health Foundation also offer some help on how to sleep better

5 Mind provide some good information in this leaflet.

Have a good nights sleep
