There are complex relationships among sleep, sleep disorders, and psychiatric illnesses: not only can sleep abnormalities be symptoms of psychiatric disorders, but also some sleep disorders increase the risks of developing episodes of psychiatric disorders. During the past few decades, a number of sleep investigations have been performed in patients with the aim of identifying specific sleep patterns associated with psychiatric disorders. Although the majority of these studies have focused on major unipolar depression, sleep abnormalities have also been reported in other psychiatric disorders, such as bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, alcohol-related and drug abuse disorders, borderline personality disorder, and eating disorders.
