LECTURE: SLEEP DEPRIVATION
‘ Sleep deprivation could improve your mental health, myth or reality?.’
With approximately 1 in 4 people being affected by one (or more) mental disorder(s) in their life and 1 in 3 adults not getting enough sleep, it is fair to say that mental health and sleep deprivation do not discriminate when choosing their victims. Both of these issues are extremely prominent in every county, state and country and have the potential to affect every one of us. Problems that reduce mental well-being are increasingly placing strain on health services. In my lecture, I will be considering the connections between these issues and will discuss the interesting research, which I discovered while completing my EPQ, which studies whether or not sleep deprivation can have positive effects on your mental health.
