A Study of Sleep, Health, and Wellness at Memorial University of Newfoundland


This survey explores the prevalence of poor and inadequate sleep among students at Memorial University of Newfoundland (MUN). Students are a group at particularly high risk of experiencing sleep problems, which have a number of negative consequences. Not only do students who experience poor or inadequate sleep often struggle to achieve academically, and display symptoms of anxiety and depression, the problematic sleep patterns of this developmental stage can persist into adulthood and mid-life. The survey will explore the psychological and behavioural correlates of poor and inadequate sleep, in the hopes of informing the development of future prevention and intervention programs on campus at MUN.
