Awww…sleep. Seems like such an easy concept, doesn’t it? “Get at least 8-9 hours of sleep per night for optimal health.” But in reality, getting quality sleep can be difficult to attain and maintain, putting our mental health in jeopardy. In fact, sleep is so critical to our well-being, it can make the difference between balanced mental health or full-blown depression or psychotic relapse.

March 6-13 is National Sleep Awareness Week. If you struggle with falling asleep or staying asleep, below are some tips from the National Sleep Foundation that might help out. Consult a health care provider if you have more serious sleep challenges.
