Sleep and ADHD

For too long we have underestimated the impact that a good night’s sleep has on wellbeing, behaviour and learning. Sleep deprivation has almost become an epidemic, particularly with our obsession with phones, iPads and computers, and can become a risk factor in the development of depression and anxiety.

Dr. Hugh Morgan will talk at the ADHD Annual Conference - Keeping Up with ADHD on 17 October 2015 - from a clinical point of view on these aspects, including sleep physiology, ADHD and its relationship with sleep disorders, how to optimise sleep (and ADHD treatment, and when to consider sleep assessment.

Dr Hugh Morgan is a Consultant Psychiatrist, Senior Clinical Lecturer, University of Sydney, Co-Director of Mindcare Centre, MBBS, FRANZCP. Hugh has a special interest in the assessment and treatment of depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety disorders, ADHD, and chronic fatigue syndrome. He has worked extensively as a Staff Specialist and Visiting Medical Officer in both public and community psychiatry.  Over the years Hugh has been very involved in mental health training for general practitioners. He has also worked for many years training psychiatric registrars in the use of evidence-based psychological therapy such as cognitive behaviour therapy.
