The Role of Caregivers' Sleep Problems in the Association between Behavioral Symptoms of Dementia and Caregiving Depression and Anxiety.
CONCLUSIONS: Sleep problems are significantly and positively associated with care-recipients' disruptive behaviors, but not with depressive and memory problems. The indirect effect of disruptive behaviors on caregivers' mood through sleep problems suggests that disruptive behaviors seem to play an important role for understanding caregivers' sleep problems.

The Longitudinal Association between Sleep Duration and Suicidal Behavior among Chinese Adolescents: The Role of Nonmedical Use of Prescription Drug.
Abstract OBJECTIVE/BACKGROUND: Abnormal sleep and nonmedical use of prescription drugs are known to be factors associated with suicidal behavior, but the nature of the association between weekday sleep duration and suicidal behavior has not been elucidated. Nonmedical use of prescription drugs may play a mediator role in the association mentioned above. PARTICIPANTS: There were a total of 3,273 high school students interviewed at baseline with a response rate of 96.8% and followed up at one year (retention rate, 96.1%). The mean (SD) age of the students was 13.7 (1.0) years. METHODS: Data were drawn from...

Perception versus Reality: The Relationship between Subjective and Objective Measures of Sleep When On-call under Simulated Laboratory Conditions.
CONCLUSIONS: Some objective measures of sleep were associated with subjective estimates of sleep duration and sleep quality. However, individuals may overestimate sleep onset latency and underestimate sleep duration during on-call periods. It may be beneficial for on-call workers to actively reflect on feelings of fatigue/alertness for workplace fatigue management, rather than relying solely on estimates of sleep.

Correlates of Sleep Duration in Early Childhood: A Systematic Review.
CONCLUSIONS: Young children from low-income households, single families, or having overweight parents may be at risk for short sleep duration. Promoting healthy sleep duration from an early age appears essential. Effective practices may include encouraging an earlier bedtime, limiting screen time, and establishing a regular bedtime routine. The absence of consistent evidence in the psychological, cognitive, and emotional domain as well as the physical environmental domain warrants further research.

Associations Between Child Sleep Problems and Maternal Mental Health in Children with ADHD.
Conclusions: This study demonstrates important connections between many child sleep problems and particular aspects of maternal mental health, suggesting adaptations to behavioral sleep interventions for children and mental health interventions for parents to take a family approach may be beneficial. Future research should consider the longitudinal associations between child sleep and parent mental health in an effort to inform future intervention approaches.

Insomnia Symptoms and Suicide-Related Ideation in U.S. Army Service Members.
Conclusions: A more refined delineation of insomnia and suicide-related ideation may serve to clarify the nature of the association, and potentially offer some clues as to the underlying mechanisms. With regard to potential clinical implications, the results support that careful assessment of insomnia symptoms, suicide-related ideation, and their respective subtypes, is important and may influence how we estimate risk for suicide.
