What Sleeping Better Feels Like

Sleep Survey Report

Mood Disorders Society of Canada (MDSC) conducted a national survey to understand sleep behaviours and perceptions about sleep, and the extent to which it is linked to mental health. How sleep supports our mental health, and how mental illness can impact our sleep. Ultimately, MDSC wanted to provide Canadians with information on the importance of sleep to their wellness. MDSC engaged the independent firm Narrative Research to perform this research.

The National Sleep and Mental Health Survey presents a summary of study results, followed by a detailed analysis from each of selected questions.
