June Helping Hands – Sleep and Wellness

EAP Peers:
     This month we address sleep. Sleep and its relationship with mental health, in particular sleep and depression are discussed. How to improve sleep habits and some sleep facts are included on page 2. 
     Healthy sleep is one of the most important factors is maintaining good mental health. Most of us do not get enough regular sleep – 8 hours a night. Many of our co-workers work off shifts that can alter our normal circadian rhythms. Mental health is affected depending upon the amount of sleep deprivation experienced. We can help our off-shift and rotating shift co-workers about how sleep affects their mental health and direct them to information that can help them get healthier sleep. 
     Thank you for taking good care of each other – please remember to take good care of yourselves also!  

Bryan Hutchinson, M.S.
