Mental Health and Insomnia: A Conversation with Psychiatrist Dr. Josephine McNary
I recently had a chance to speak with psychiatrist and founder of CalPsychiatry, Josephine McNary. We examined the link between sleep and other mental health conditions like anxiety, depression and PTSD. Sleep is one of the most basic needs and when it’s not working EVERYTHING is more difficult.
The good news is that insomnia is VERY treatable without medication.
