Understanding sleep: don’t hit snooze on your health

This free e-learning course was created in collaboration with The Sleep Geek and supported by Silentnight, official sleep partner of RSPH.

The programme adopts a preventative approach and will provide useful information, relevant to all members of the general public, around the link between sleep and health and wellbeing. 

Sleep is a vital building block in the foundations of health and wellbeing, and yet it is often overlooked and underestimated. This e-learning programme aims to confront this issue by empowering the public with knowledge and understanding on a broad range of sleep issues including: sleep as a public health issue, melatonin, drugs and alcohol, sleep and culture, and sleep disorders.
