Sleep Awareness Week Logo for 2024

Annually, the National Sleep Foundation takes time to emphasize the important connection between sleep health and well-being. In conjunction with the National Sleep Foundation’s 2024 Sleep Awareness Week® (March 10-16, 2024), we are pleased to hold a Congressional Briefing on Sleep Health and Mental Health.

The United States is in the midst of a mental health crisis. The US Surgeon General, along with the Centers for Disease Control and National Institutes of Health have indicated that the “mental health crisis” is among the biggest health challenges facing the United States.
