‘Adolescent sleep, distress, and technology use: weekday versus weekend’

Open Access paper from our CAMH journal 2023 Special Issue

Background – In adolescents, technology use at bedtime is linked to disrupted sleep and psychological distress. Adolescents are known to sleep later on weekends compared to weekdays but whether this leads to greater technology use, and, hence, additional psychological distress is not known. At greater risk maybe adolescents with a late compared to early chronotype, that is a preference for late versus early sleep onset and offset times.
