Empowering Minds: Bridging Sleep Equity for Global Health on World Sleep Day 2024

In alignment with the global discourse on sleep health, the European Network of Active Living for Mental Health (ENALMH) is proud to rally mental health professionals and advocates to champion the theme for  World Sleep Day 2024: "Sleep Equity for Global Health." Sleep, a cornerstone of well-being, remains indispensable in maintaining optimal mental health. However, ENALMH acknowledges that considerable variations persist in sleep health worldwide, contributing to health disparities and reinforcing existing inequities.


See our proposed activities to elevate the conversation around sleep equity. As part of our commitment to fostering holistic mental health, ENALMH proposes a multifaceted approach to address sleep inequities and elevate the discourse on sleep health:

1.  Cross-Disciplinary Collaborations:  ENALMH encourages collaborative efforts between mental health professionals and sleep health advocates. By fostering cross-disciplinary dialogues, we aim to generate comprehensive insights into the intersection of mental health and sleep.

2.  Educational Initiatives:  Implement educational programs that raise awareness about the crucial link between sleep equity and mental health. ENALMH is dedicated to developing resources that empower individuals to prioritize healthy sleep habits for overall well-being.

3.  Advocacy for Policy Change: Advocate for policies that recognize the impact of sleep on mental health and work towards reducing disparities. ENALMH will actively engage with policymakers to ensure that sleep equity is a fundamental consideration in public health strategies.

4.  Global Campaigns: Launch global campaigns in collaboration with like-minded organizations to amplify the message of sleep equity. By participating in #WorldSleepDay, ENALMH aims to contribute to a collective effort that transcends geographical boundaries.

Quotes from ENALMH leaders:

"Sleep is a universal pillar of health, yet not everyone has equal access to quality sleep. By addressing sleep equity, we take a significant step towards fostering mental health equity globally."

"ENALMH is committed to leveraging its network to unite professionals and advocates in pursuing sleep health for all. Together, we can create a world where everyone has the opportunity for restorative sleep and, consequently, better mental health."
