Mental Health and the Body Clock PSP

Daily (circadian) rhythms are a feature of all life on earth. These 24-hour rhythms allow us to align our bodies and behaviours to our environment and the daily cycles of light and dark.

Well-synchronized circadian rhythms are fundamental for human health and wellbeing, and are particularly important for mental health.

Mental Health and the Body Clock Priority Setting Partnership

The Mental Health and the Body Clock PSP will gather uncertainties that explore the disruption of body clocks in people with mental health difficulties, and mental health difficulties in people with disrupted body clocks.  This will include questions about experiences, difficulties, symptoms, diagnosis, intervention, treatment and care and will be of relevance to different age groups and different scenarios (e.g., general population as well as shift workers).
