Sleep & Bipolar

Thanks very much to everyone who joined us at the July meeting, your participation in the group discussion on sleep was much appreciated!

We spoke about some of the triggers (external factors or life events) which can affect our sleep pattern and may cause a change in mood levels as a result. We agreed that changes in sleep pattern may also be an early warning sign of the onset of an episode of hypomania or depression and the importance of making changes to avoid things getting worse.

We ended the discussion sharing ideas to improve our bedtime sleep routine and you can read the notes by clicking here.
