DAY 1 – Sleepy, Happy, Grumpy? Linking sleep, mental health and well being.

“The best bridge between despair and hope is a good night’s sleep,” a wise man once said.

We all need sleep, just like we need to eat, drink and breathe! Our speakers will discuss the importance of good sleep in relation to our mental health and well being. We will be surprised if you nod off!

Speakers at this event include: Dr Donna Littlewood (Research Associate at The University of Manchester) and Prof. Derk-Jan Dijk (Professor of Sleep and Physiology/Director of the Surrey Sleep Research Centre )
