Insomnia is very common, particularly for those with other mental health disorders.
Insomnia encompasses difficulty falling asleep, difficulty staying asleep, or waking up too early and being unable to return to sleep. It can be a primary disorder or symptomatic of another mental health or medical disorder. Inability to obtain an adequate amount of meaningful sleep has a profound impact on our ability to function. Insomnia can have a devastating impact on our quality of life along with our physical and mental health.
Insomnia is very common among those experiencing mental health disorders. When insomnia is intertwined with a mental health disorder, we will work to eliminate insomnia by treating the underlying disorder. For example, depression is a common cause of early morning awakening with difficulty returning to sleep. Anxiety and stress may make it difficult to fall or stay asleep as the mind races and ruminates. By treating the underlying disorder, insomnia often resolves on its own. Sometimes medication may also be beneficial as a short-term or even long-term aid.
