Tuck has created a resource guide about trauma and sleep that our community might benefit from seeing. You can take a look at our guide here. It includes an in-depth look at how physical and mental trauma can affect the brain’s ability to rest. Because sleep is such a vital part of wellness, chronic sleep deprivation can make recovery difficult and increase the severity of physical and mental symptoms. The guide also includes information about what to do if PTSD or a traumatic brain injury is causing insomnia or disturbed sleep.
