How to sleep well and improve mental health: A Beyond Blue sleep webinar with Dr Norman Swan and the Sleep Health Foundation 

6 August 2024

Difficulty sleeping is a common problem affecting about 40% of all Australians.

It can really impact our day-to-day lives, from how we interact with people, how we think and feel, to our productivity at work or school.

Sleep problems can also greatly affect our mental health, in fact sleep and mental health are two sides of the same coin, both influencing each other.
