Mental health disorders happen when a person is not able to function either cognitively or emotionally. Addiction – obsessions, compulsions, or psychological or physical dependence on substances or activities – forms a large category of mental disorders.

In our support group, you will be able to find patients, their families, and their doctors dealing with the same problems as you, and willing to share their valuable experience and wisdom.

Sleep Disorder: Narcolepsy

Narcolepsy is a chronic sleep disorder in which a person feels excessively sleepy during the day, and has disturbed night sleep. Narcolepsy is often associated with sudden loss of muscle tone, and brief paralysis and vivid hallucinations before and after sleep.

Join our online support group for people with narcolepsy. If you have a question, you can talk it over with experts or others who have suffered a similar problem.

Sleep Disorder: Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA)

Join our online group on obstructive sleep apnea to learn more about the condition and meet people who can help.

Sleep Disorder: Periodic Limb Movement Disorder

Sleep Disorder:Sleep Problems in Children

Children tend to suffer from some sleep problems like nightmares, sleepwalking, and night terrors more often than adults. Children who are not sleeping well tend to have more behavior and concentration problems, and you need to make sure your child is getting a full nine hours of restful sleep every night.

Join our online support group for parents of children with sleep problems to ask your questions to experts, share your experiences, and learn more.

Sleep Disorders in Elderly / Ageing and Sleep

People tend to sleep less well as they age. They may sleep lighter and wake up periodically in the night, or feel sleepy and tired through the day, or they may suffer from other sleep pathologies like sleep-disordered breathing and the periodic limb movement disorder.

Join our online group on aging and sleep to ask your questions to experts, share your experiences, and learn more.

Sleep Disorders: A Prelude

Sleep disorders cause a person to have disturbed, unrestful, or unusual sleep patterns; or they cause behaviors during sleep that normally happen when someone is awake. Sleep disorders have a domino effect on other areas of life, because lack of sleep and rest easily cause other problems at work or in relationships and even health.

Join our online support group for people with sleep disorders. If you have a question, you can talk it over with experts or others who have suffered similar problems.

Sleep Disturbances In Women

Sleep disturbances – like insomnia and sleep eating – are more common among women. Stressors like work and caring for infants, depression, and hormonal problems can cause sleep disturbances.

Join our online support group for women with sleep disturbances. Ask your questions to experts, share your experiences, and learn more.

Sleep Eating Disorders

People with sleep eating disorders eat and sometimes prepare food in their sleep. Like sleep walkers, they have no or very little memory of this when they are awake. Many people with sleep eating disorders diet during the day, and they tend to be depressed, worried, exhausted or angry.

Join our online support group for sleep eating disorders to find help and support from other sleep eaters and professionals who care.

Many children, and a few adults, talk in their sleep. Sleep talking is sometimes, but not always, associated with dreaming and the rapid eye movement-phase of sleep. It is not usually considered a disorder, and most children outgrow it. But if the sleep talking is vulgar or violent, it can be a sign of other problems.
