Do you get enough sleep?

8 October 2022

Members are being encouraged to join a ‘Better Sleep’ virtual webinar this World Mental Health Day (Monday 10 October).

The webinar is part of a wide ‘Better Sleep Toolkit’, a programme that has been created by the national police wellbeing service Oscar Kilo and The Sleep Scientist, Dr Sophie Bostock.

The aim of the toolkit, which includes a four-week better sleep course, a series of webinars and a host of advice, is to support officers, staff and volunteers with fatigue and sleep problems.

The programme was created as a result of the first national police wellbeing survey, which found that 45 per cent of police officers and 30 per cent of police staff reported sleeping less than six hours per night. 

Monday’s webinar will focus specifically on sleep and mental health.

You can sign up or get more information by visiting the Oscar Kilo website.
