The role of sleeping difficulties in the subsequent development of depression and anxiety in young women
Sleep disturbance and depression are more common in women than men. Sleeping difficulties such as insomnia have been associated with the development of depression and anxiety later in life in both young and older age groups of both genders. This study will examine the possible predictive relationship between sleeping difficulties and subsequent depression and anxiety across a 9 year follow up period in young women. A secondary aim of the study is to examine the prevalence of sleeping difficulty, depression and anxiety in young women over time, and the potential bidirectional relationship between sleep disturbance and mental health.
