Sleep Self-Assessment

It's normal to sleep poorly on occasion, especially in reaction to stress. But people who don't sleep well are more likely to be depressed, irritable or anxious – and poor sleep can contribute to problems with attention, concentration, and memory. If you're having trouble sleeping, your job performance, family life, and relationships can suffer, and you're at increased risk for accidents

Welcome to the Sleep Assessment

Completing this questionnaire should take about five minutes. When you've completed the assessment, your results will be returned along with some resources you're sure to find helpful.
