My research question was: what is the effect of the amount of sleep college students get on their mental health and academic performance. I was hoping to find out what the effects were and how college students can cope better with the amount of sleep they get. Research was conducted using library and internet resources to locate both primary and secondary research. For this study, I utilized both academic articles and popular internet sources. It was found that the sleep college students obtain affects their lives in many ways including in mental health and academic performance, and this knowledge can be applied to their lives in many ways to improve these aspects of their lives including increasing academic performance and improving mental health. Sleep can be the difference between a higher grade or not and good mental health or not. College students should all make sure that they get enough sleep.
