Insomnia is a sleep condition that can both be caused by psychological issues and cause other mental health problems. When an individual experiences insomnia, they typically have trouble falling asleep and staying asleep. Often times, these important elements of sleep can be initiated by anxiety and stress which can come from trauma, addiction, overworking, and other issues. Ultimately, the overall lack of sleep can cause problems with functioning productively and positively in society, causing even more issues such as depression, personality changes, and communication. Learning how to manage your sleep habits in order to gain control over other aspects of your life is a fundamental reason to seek the help of a therapist.
