Sleep and mental health influence each other, having what is often referred to as a bidirectional relationship. This means that having poor sleep can lead to worse mental health, and vice versa. Sleep apnea can result in impaired memory, difficulty concentrating, excessive daytime sleepiness, irritability and mood changes, all of which can have a negative effect on your day-to-day life. Various studies have found a link between sleep apnea and mental health, with people with sleep apnea being more likely to experience mental health issues.
While sleep apnea treatment has not as yet been proven to completely resolve mental health issues, it can allow you to get a better night’s sleep and help lessen symptoms associated with anxiety and depression, allowing you to experience a higher quality of life.
