Sleep Problems

Sleep disorders are conditions that disturb your normal sleep patterns. There is a close connection between sleep and your mental health. 

School Support

School is able to offer support through:

  • Sharing of strategies to establish a bedtime routine.
  • Provide social story to support with bedtime routine.
  • Referral to specialist services if appropriate.


Sleep Support for Families

If your sleep problems continue for a long time, the things you try at home are not helping, or if you are worried about an emotional or physical problem, you should speak to a GP. It may be that you have a sleep disorder that you need treatment for. Severe sleep problems can also be a sign of a mental health condition, such as depression or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
