It is estimated by the Australian Institute for Health and Welfare that 48% of Australian adults report at least 2 sleep related problems.

Getting enough sleep is crucial for our overall health and wellbeing. While most Australians are meeting national recommendations for how much sleep is required each night, many still experience some form of sleep problem. Poor sleep can seriously affect a person’s quality of life and increase the risk of developing chronic health conditions. It also has a substantial impact on the Australian economy.

Experiencing sleep problems is associated with an increased risk of Type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, coronary heart disease and stroke.
