Bipolar disorder is a debilitating mental health condition marked by episodes of mania or hypomania and depression. A person with bipolar disorder cycles between these mood episodes throughout his or her lifetime, leading to significant impairment in functioning and overall quality of life. Sleep disturbances pervade the course of bipolar disorder, occurring before, during, and after mood episodes. Sleep disturbances also negatively impact the treatment outcome for individuals with bipolar disorder. Thus, interventions aimed at improving sleep in this clinical population are needed. This chapter discusses sleep disturbances in the context of bipolar disorder as well as empirically validated strategies to improve sleep specifically for bipolar disorder.
