Did you know?

Teens with fewer than six hours of sleep per night are:
  • Two-three times more likely to experience depression and suicidal thoughts.
  • Driving with reaction times equivalent to having a blood alcohol content of .05.
  • Significantly more likely to use drugs, alcohol, caffeine, and engage in other at-risk behavior.

How do the current findings of nationally recognized researchers on teens and sleep translate to better school performance, improved physical and mental health, and reduced risky choices among teens?
