Yet another link between insomnia and thoughts of suicide

Insomnia has a strong association with suicidal thoughts. Now another study has confirmed the link.

Researchers found that participants had more intense suicidal thoughts when suffering from insomnia - but that's not really anything new.

What's of more interest (and importance) is the fact the study also discovered that 'dysfunctional beliefs about sleep' and even nightmares were the cause of these suicidal ideas.

This research is important because not only does it further confirm how seriously insomnia needs to be taken, it also suggests a potential treatment strategy.

Perhaps if we are more proactive when it comes to improving attitudes and beliefs towards sleep, we could reduce suicidal thoughts due to sleep deprivation.

This could be as simple as promoting basic sleep hygiene and making cognitive behavioral therapy more widely available and accessible.

If you ever feel suicidal, call the US National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255.
