Sleep Awareness Week

The National Sleep Foundation announced Sleep Awareness Week 2024 will take place from March 10-16. Sleep Awareness Week, now in its 26th year, is the National Sleep Foundation’s annual campaign emphasizing the importance of sleep to health and well-being and a call to action for the public to prioritize getting enough of the quality sleep they need.

As part of this year’s campaign, the National Sleep Foundation further announced it will hold a Congressional Briefing on sleep health and mental health on Wednesday, March 13. The Briefing, entitled Sleep Health is Mental Health. Members of Congress, staff, and interested stakeholders will hear from a multidisciplinary expert panel about the association between sleep health and mental health, plus discuss opportunities to effect positive change while Congress works towards comprehensive mental health legislation.

Established in 1998 by the National Sleep Foundation, Sleep Awareness Week is the premier awareness and education campaign for sleep health. Each year, the National Sleep Foundation releases the results of its hallmark Sleep in America Poll during the campaign week. The Sleep in America poll helps the public understand key attitudes, behaviors, and experiences with sleep health and explores a broad range of topics from aging and exercise to pain and incorporating healthy sleep behaviors into daily living. Most recently, the 2023 Sleep in America poll reinforced how sleep health and healthy sleep behaviors are strongly associated with mental health in adults.

Sleep Awareness Week begins at the start of Daylight Saving Time when most Americans change their clocks and lose an hour of sleep.

National Sleep Foundation independently produces the Sleep in America poll, Sleep Awareness Week, and all related official educational content. The campaign reaches millions of people in the US and abroad and generates billions of media impressions each year.
