Project Sleep, a nonprofit focused on raising awareness of sleep health, sleep equity, and sleep disorders, has launched Sleep Helpline, a professionally staffed national helpline providing resources to help individuals navigate sleep issues and sleep disorders.

The Sleep Helpline invites individuals seeking information about sleep disorders to reach out, including those uncertain if they might have a sleep-related condition and those diagnosed with a sleep condition, along with loved ones, caregivers, health care providers, educators, and social workers.

“An estimated 50-70 million Americans live with a chronic sleep disorder, yet the majority are undiagnosed,” says Julie Flygare, JD, president and CEO of Project Sleep, in a release. “We know that the path to finding accurate sleep disorder diagnosis, treatment, and support is often long, lonely, and inefficient. This is why the new Sleep Helpline will meet people where they are in moments of uncertainty, to provide free and personalized one-to-one support and resources.”

The Sleep Helpline launched on Dec 6, with resource specialists available Monday through Friday from 9 am to 4 pm EST. Individuals can call the Sleep Helpline via phone at 1-800-819-2043 or by email at [email protected]

Jazz Pharmaceuticals and Harmony Biosciences provided sponsorship funding to support the development of the Sleep Helpline.

“The Sleep Helpline will be a tremendous help to all of us in the sleep community who care for patients,” says Michael A. Grandner, PhD, MTR, director of the Sleep and Health Research Program at the University of Arizona and member of Project Sleep’s advisory board, in a release. “Especially in our busy society where sleep is undervalued and sleep disorders are often overlooked, this new resource led by a respected nonprofit like Project Sleep will empower individuals to understand their sleep symptoms, guide them as they seek the right healthcare attention sooner, and support them as their experiences and concerns evolve over time.”
