The Link Between Sleep Loss and Clinical Depression

Research studies
reveal that there is a link between stress and
depression. It has been found that lack of sleep can increase an individual’s risk of experiencing clinical
depression. Other research studies suggest that depression might
cause sleep problems, such as insomnia, which is
common in a lot of patients who are experiencing clinical
depression.

Moreover, researchers
discovered that in some people, symptoms of
depression
occur first prior to
finding an onset of sleep disorders. In others,
signs of sleep problems are observed
first than clinical depression.

Many experts agree that
curing sleep problems that accompany clinical depression can be the solution to a
successful depression treatment. Evidences
indicate that sleep therapy for depression, also called cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia or CBT-I
can be more powerful than other treatment
options in minimizing symptoms.
Scientists discovered that curing
insomnia in people with clinical depression can
increase their chances of accomplishing a full recovery.
