What Is The Link Between Poor Sleep & Mental Health?
EmotionMatters have been helping patients of The Sleep Disorders Clinic for many years to manage their mental health struggles to improve sleep.
Sleep plays an important role in our mental health and wellbeing, and sets strong foundations of a healthy mind and body. Lack of sleep, and poor sleep quality, can negatively impact our mental health and make us more prone to stress, anxiety, depression and lacking the energy to fully engage in our day-to-day activities.
At the same time, people who struggle with mental health issues are more likely to experience sleep difficulties, such as finding it hard to fall asleep, waking up in the middle of the night, or waking up very early in the morning. As a result of the lack of energy, people are less likely to self-care and look after themselves, creating a vicious cycle of poor sleep and mental health.
The Sleep Disorders Clinic can provide you with a treatment plan on how to improve your sleep to support the work you are doing with your therapist.
TREATMENT FOR SLEEP APNOEA
Excess weight is a major contributing factor to Sleep Disordered Breathing, particulty Obstructive Sleep Apnoea. Excess weight in many cases can lead to Obstructive Sleep Apnoea due to large neck sizes and fluid distribution. As a result of sleep apnoea, people may also experience mental health difficulties, such as depression and anxiety and is therefore important to get treatment for their sleep disorder.
Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) is the gold standard treatment for Obstructive Sleep Apnoea. Sleep Apnoea is the process of the upper airway partially or fully closing, often leading to snoring and pauses in breathing, resulting in a highly fragmented sleep. CPAP supports the airway by providing normal room air at higher pressure, splinting the airway open, controlling the snoring and Sleep Apnoea. The Sleep Disorders Clinic provides a comprehensive CPAP treatment plan with frequent structured reviews to ensure your CPAP journey is as smooth as possible. Our CPAP service is led by our expert Sleep Physiologists.
Pre Surgical Sleep Studies
Surgery and general anaesthetics are serious procedures. Our pre surgical sleep studies help make them safer. Our pre-surgical sleep studies help identify and quantify the presence of any sleep disordered breathing. If further management is required to make your surgery safer these will be explained.
Working with your EmotionMatters practitioner, your particular history will be discussed and your consultation will be directed to the right professional for you. Whether that’s a Sleep Physician or a Sleep Physiologist.
