Description

Lecture title -- "They mostly come at night. Mostly." Sleep disturbances' impact on suicidal behaviours.

Speaker: Dr Kevin Hochard, University of Chester

As a nation reporting frequent tiredness and sleeplessness, we are all too aware of the importance of a good night’s sleep. And never more so than when things go bump in our night. Evidence is mounting that disturbed sleep impacts not only our physical health, but also our mental wellbeing. Alarmingly, insomnia, nightmares, and general night time wakefulness have been shown to be robust risk factors for increased suicide and self-harm. I will use this lecture to discuss an overview of theory and research evidence which underpin this phenomenon, and to make recommendations for practice regarding how to best mitigate the negative link between disturbed sleep and suicidal behaviours in at risk populations.
