Description

Having trouble sleeping makes those with depression more likely to have suicidal thoughts, new research from the University of Manchester suggests.

A study has found that people with depression are more likely to have suicidal thoughts following a bad night’s sleep, whether that’s not getting enough sleep or a night spent tossing and turning.

Researchers analysed 51 people experiencing suicidal thoughts, asking them to wear Actigraph watches to monitor their total sleep time and how long it took them to fall asleep, and to complete diaries to record the quality of their sleep.
