National Sleep Awareness Week 2009


March 1-8th is National Sleep Awareness Week. Many Americans do not get the recommended amount of sleep, and more people are turning to medications to help them sleep. Sleep disorders affect more than 70 million adults in the U.S. although many individuals may not know that they have a sleep disorder. Psychologists can provide behavioral therapy that is quite effective for many sleep disorders.
