Project Sleep Launches the Sleep Helpline™

Project Sleep is thrilled to announce the official launch of the Sleep Helpline™, a new national helpline providing timely and trusted resources to help individuals navigate sleep issues and sleep disorders at every step of the journey.

“An estimated 50-70 million Americans live with a chronic sleep disorder, yet the majority are undiagnosed,” said Julie Flygare, JD, President & CEO of Project Sleep. “We know that the path to finding accurate sleep disorder diagnosis, treatment, and support is often long, lonely, and inefficient. This is why the new Sleep Helpline will meet people where they are in moments of uncertainty, to provide free and personalized one-to-one support and resources.”

Who Can Contact the Sleep Helpline?

The Sleep Helpline welcomes anyone looking for information about sleep disorders to reach out, including those uncertain if they might have a sleep-related condition, those diagnosed with a sleep condition, along with loved ones, caregivers, healthcare providers, educators, and social workers.

“The Sleep Helpline will be a tremendous help to all of us in the sleep community who care for patients,” said Michael A. Grandner, PhD MTR, Director of the Sleep and Health Research Program at the University of Arizona, and Member of Project Sleep’s Expert Advisory Board. “Especially in our busy society where sleep is undervalued and sleep disorders are often overlooked, this new resource led by a respected nonprofit like Project Sleep will empower individuals to understand their sleep symptoms, guide them as they seek the right healthcare attention sooner, and support them as their experiences and concerns evolve over time.” 

Who We Aim To Support

There are a wide variety of common and serious sleep disorders, including breathing disorders such as obstructive sleep apnea, central sleep apnea, and upper-airway resistance syndrome; hypersomnias such as narcolepsy, idiopathic hypersomnia, and Kleine-Levin syndrome; insomnia disorder; movement disorders such as restless legs syndrome and periodic limb movements; parasomnias such as REM sleep behavior disorder and sleepwalking; and sleep-wake disorders such as Non-24 and shift work disorder.

“As a person living with a sleep disorder myself, I know first-hand that there are times when you are not sure where to turn or who to talk to,” added Julie Flygare. “We want you to know that you are not alone – Project Sleep’s Sleep Helpline is here to address your questions and figure out next steps together.”
