A new article in the Scientific American sheds light on the connection between depression and sleep issues.
There are quite a few recent studies that explore this connection between sleep habits and mental health.
Another study, this one conducted by the Cleveland Clinic, found that using a sleep apnea breathing machine on over 779 people caused the people to score lower on a common depression survey. The way I see it, you can’t consider a psychiatric disorder without thinking about a sleep-breathing problem.


We all know it can be hard to sleep (or, for some people to do anything but sleep) when we’re feeling sad, but this new evidence says that treating sleep problems (especially sleep apnea) can dramatically improve psychiatric symptoms in some patients. A study conducted by the┬áCenters for Disease Control and Prevention analyzed the medical records of almost 10,000 adults with sleep apnea. Sleep apnea is a condition, common in men, where you repeatedly stop breathing while you’re sleeping. The CDC found that men who had sleep apnea were twice as likely to also be diagnosed with depression, and that women were a full five times as likely.


Researchers speculate that the oxygen deprived by sleep apnea could harm cells and disrupt normal brain functioning, contributing to psychiatric problems.
