Given the success of the first edition of the Special Issue “Sleep Quality, Well-Being and Mental Health among Adults”, published in The International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health (IJERPH) (https://www.mdpi.com/journal/ijerph/special_issues/Sleep_Mental), we would like to continue exploring this topic. IJERPH is a peer-reviewed scientific journal that publishes articles and communications in the interdisciplinary area of environmental health sciences and public health. Over the past 6 years, we have seen a continuous growth of IJERPH and an increase in the impact factor, based on citation activity on the Web of Science database. For detailed information on the journal, we refer you to https://www.mdpi.com/journal/ijerph.
Sleep is one of the main behavioral drivers for both mental and physical well-being. Although research has established that sleep deficiencies (insufficient or long sleep duration, poor sleep quality, or irregular timing of sleep) are a barrier to positive well-being, less is known about how sleep health promotes positive well-being and mental health. Sleep health provides a holistic picture of sleep, comprising multiple dimensions—including adequate duration, timing, regularity, efficiency, satisfaction, and daytime alertness. Furthermore, sleep health exists along a continuum, which extends our study of sleep beyond poor sleep, to include good sleep. Through accounting for a health-oriented perspective—as opposed to centering a disease-oriented perspective—we can better characterize all individuals in the population, and more deeply understand the benefits associated with healthy sleep.
Given the potential for research on sleep health to encompass multiple facets of sleep, both healthy and unhealthy, this Special Issue focuses on the role of sleep health for well-being and mental health specifically. We invite submissions of manuscripts focused on aspects—or multidimensional assessments—of sleep health, including both good and/or poor sleepers, considering disparities in sleep health, or accounting for the psychological, social, or behavioral promoters of sleep health.
