Earlier Bed Time Can Marginilize Depression/Suicide
A study in Sleep found that adolescents with earlier bedtimes were significantly less likely to suffer from depression and consider suicide. Furthermore, children who got only 5 hours of sleep were far more likely to suffer from depression and suicidal tendencies vs. those getting at least 8 hours of sleep/night.
The reason for this relationship is, as of now, unclear.
