Sleep training for teenagers

16th March 2011

Teenagers in Scottish schools are to be offered teaching on how to get enough sleep.

The teaching pack created by the charity Sleep Scotland is to be used as part of the curriculum for excellence and aims to raise awareness of the importance of sleep for young people’s emotional and physical wellbeing. The charity, which also offers a sleep counselling service, said getting enough sleep can boost academic performance and physical health while watching television and using computers and mobile phones at night can prevent teenagers getting the sleep they need.
