New Report: U.S. Teens Say They Are Sleep-Deprived and Stressed

American teens say they aren’t getting enough sleep, need help managing and reducing stress, and are concerned about mental health needs in their communities, according to a teen-led research study of nearly 1,000 youth ages 13 to 19.

“It is a vicious cycle: sleep-deprivation leads to stress in school, including daytime drowsiness and poor school performance; emotional and mental stress, such as depression and mood problems; physical health problems, including obesity; and high-risk behaviors, such as substance abuse and drowsy driving,” said Dr. Martha Molina Bernadett, family physician and founder of the Molina Foundation.
