Fraser Willsey, BA, RPSGT
Sleep technologist at The Royal


Getting a good sleep is one of the best things we can do for our mental and physical health. For some people, however, a peaceful night’s sleep is just out of reach. Sleep issues often bring unwelcome challenges, not just to the affected person, but to their family and loved ones. (Consider, for example, loud snoring and sleep apnea!)

Join Fraser Willsey, a sleep technician at the Sleep Disorders Clinic at The Royal, for this introduction to sleep disorders, common sleep issues, and respective treatments. Topics for discussion include: the link between sleep and mental health; sleep issues for different ages and stages; strategies to offset sleep deprivation; a review of helpful resources about sleep. There will be time for questions at the end.
