It’s SleepWellSunday says Mental Health America.

A good night’s sleep can often be the first thing we sacrifice to make sure all of our daily demands are taken care of, but sleep is about so much more than just shutting your eyes. When we don’t get enough sleep, our bodies don’t have time to repair organs and flush toxins from our brains, which can increase the risk of developing high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, and symptoms of mental health disorders.

In fact, people with mental health disorders experience sleep problems at a much higher rate than those without mental health disorders. Depending on your age, the amount of sleep you need varies, but good sleep is a good thing!
