Understanding Mental Illnesses Series – Going Beyond the Surface

Understanding Insomnia

30 July 2021

Insomnia is one of the most prevalent psychological health problems worldwide.

According to various studies and information from the National Sleep Foundation, approximately 30% of the adult population reported having one or more symptoms of insomnia; difficulty initiating sleep, difficulty maintaining sleep, waking up too early, and in some cases, having nonrestorative or poor quality of sleep and 9% reported having sleep difficulties that occurred on a regular basis (Ancoli-Israel & Roth 1999, Roth 2007).

Age and gender are the most clearly identified demographic risk factors with an increased prevalence in women and older adults.

Comorbid medical disorders, psychiatric disorders, and working nights or rotating shifts may also represent significant risks for insomnia.
