Listen: Do you struggle with sleep?

Ahead of World Mental Health Day (10th October) this weekend, experts have today warned of an upcoming rise in mental health problems caused by sleep issues.

A study by Perrigo, the self-care company behind sleep brand Nytol, found that 85 per cent of healthcare professionals – including doctors and pharmacists – say that poor sleep has a significant impact on the mental health of patients, and 84 per cent believe sleep-related issues in the UK will become even more widespread in the next five years.

Charity Mental Health UK, which is partnering with Nytol to campaign for more awareness of the interdependent connection between sleep and mental health and wellbeing, warns these findings signal an upcoming increase in mental health problems related to sleep issues.
