How Psychiatry Services can Help With Common Sleep Disorders

If you have issues with sleeping, you may have tried everything to get your sleep schedule under control. A healthy and established sleep routine is a vital aspect of maintaining both physical and mental health. So, if you’re having trouble with maintaining a proper sleep schedule, this may be a sign that you’re living with a sleep disorder. If so, psychiatric services can not only help to diagnose common sleep disorders but offer treatment and assistance to establish a healthy sleep routine.

What are Sleep Disorders?

Everyone may have trouble falling asleep or getting enough sleep from time to time. But, people with sleep disorders regularly have trouble sleeping. And, as a result, experience debilitating side effects like mental and/or physical health issues. Furthermore, people living with sleep disorders can experience debilitating consequences of not getting enough or the best quality of sleep like suffering from exhaustion during the day that can interfere with jobs, daily responsibilities, and relationships.

Getting Help With Common Sleep Disorders

Various things can interfere with a person’s ability to get enough sleep or ability to fall asleep and stay asleep. Seeing a psychologist and getting help from mental health specialists for common sleep disorders can help people struggling with these issues identify underlying causes of sleep problems. For example, a psychiatrist can help to determine if sleep issues are the result of an underlying mental health issue like anxiety or depression. Furthermore, a psychologist can help people struggling with sleep issues determine the best course of action to get better sleep and fall asleep faster. They can do this by addressing any behavior or thinking patterns that can keep people from getting the healthy sleep they need.

Psychiatric services give people struggling with sleep disorders to understand their issues with sleep and where they may derive from. Plus, they can give them tools to understand how to deal with these issues in their daily lives. This way, they have the knowledge it takes to address sleep disorders and have the best chance at getting the sleep they need to establish a healthy lifestyle.

Understanding the Most Common Sleep Disorder – Insomnia

It’s estimated that 10-30% of the global population suffers from insomnia. Insomnia is when a person struggles to fall asleep or stay asleep, resulting in not getting enough sleep to function properly. People with insomnia are commonly people who are older, female, and/or living with a concurring mental health condition. While it’s not uncommon to struggle with insomnia for short periods of time, people who have insomnia for longer periods and struggle with sleep on a daily basis may be living with chronic insomnia, which is classified as a sleep disorder. Psychiatric services help people struggling with insomnia to identify lifestyles, habits, behaviors, or thought patterns that interfere with their sleep and contribute to insomnia. And, evaluate them to determine if there are any underlying and concurring mental health issues that may play a part in the development of insomnia.
