The diagnosis of mental illness is frequently accompanied by sleep problems; conversely, people experiencing sleep problems may subsequently develop mental illness. Sleep and Mental Illness looks at this close correlation and considers the implications of research findings that have emerged in the last few years. Additionally, it surveys the essential concepts and practical tools required to deal with sleep and co-morbid psychiatric problems. The volume is divided into three main sections: basic science, neuroendocrinology, and clinical science. Included are over 30 chapters on topics such as neuropharmacology, insomnia, depression, dementia, autism, and schizophrenia. Relevant questionnaires for the assessment of sleep disorders, including quality-of-life measurement tools, are provided. There is also a summary table of drugs for treating sleep disorders. This interdisciplinary text will be of interest to clinicians working in psychiatry, behavioral sleep medicine, neurology, pulmonary and critical care medicine.

'This book aims to provide a comprehensive review of sleep and mental illness. This it achieves with aplomb. A thoughtprovoking foreword is followed by chapters divided into three subsections. The basic sciences section is up to date and concise, with useful tables and relevant references. … It will be most useful to psychiatrists and psychologists. However, other sleep specialists, including basic scientists, neurologists and respiratory physicians, will also find it an invaluable resource.' The British Journal of Psychiatry
