Event description
Learn about the intersection of insomnia and mental health from a specialist

About this Event

Quality of sleep has a huge impact on mental health -- and mental health also impacts sleep. Dr. Anna Womack, of the Manhattan Center for Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, will present on the intersection between sleep and mental illness from a clinical perspective. She'll discuss sleep hygiene, the different ways that various mental health conditions can affect sleep, and a range of evidence-based interventions. She'll also answer questions from the audience.
