Sleep problems can lead to depression in young people.
This was revealed in a medical study conducted in Australia.
Research from the University of Flanders found that short sleep duration in adolescence, interference with body clock functions, and the dominance of negative thoughts while trying to sleep are all factors that cause depression.
Researchers said that first of all, there is drowsiness during the day, which makes it difficult to sleep at night.
He added that sleeping late at night and waking up early in the morning increases the severity of symptoms of depression.
He said that changing the clothes while lying on the bed has a negative effect on the functions of the body clock and it also increases the risk of depression.
More research is needed to determine the link between sleep and depression, which will also help develop more effective strategies to prevent depression, he said.
He further said that the family should provide support for the sleep and mental health of the youth and their sleep time should be fixed and followed.
The findings were published in Nature Reviews Psychology
