Sleep is an important part of everyone’s lives and we know that difficulties with sleep can make managing daily activities more difficult. This might include feeling more stressed, anxious, angry or unable to complete tasks. In families, if one person is struggling to sleep this can affect the whole family. We have collected some resources to help young people improve their sleep.

As we know people struggling with sleep can have difficulties with their emotional wellbeing and behaviours, you may find our other sections helpful.
