The prevalence of sleep disturbances in adolescents and the link to mental health disorders
MetadataShow full item record
There is a large body of research showing that sleep disorders are becoming more prevalent, especially in developing children in the United States. The negative effects of sleep disorders are well researched in adults. One such negative effect is the connection between sleep disorders and mental health disorders. Though this connection is well researched in adults, less is known about the connection between sleep disorders and mental health in developing children. The primary purpose of this paper is to review existing literature on the negative effects of sleep disorders, the causes of sleep disorders in children, and how sleep disorders may affect the mental well-being of developing teenagers in their time of vulnerability.
