Experts Note Children with Mental Health Disorders May Be More Sensitive to Daylight Savings Time Change

Posted on March 2, 2019 in Announcements

Maintaining a healthy sleep schedule for a child or adolescent is part of a solid foundation for every family’s well-being. For children or adolescents with a mental or behavioral health diagnosis, sleep is especially vital. Physicians at Nationwide Children’s Hospital say they notice several changes in sleeping patterns around daylight savings time, which can particularly affect patients with a mental health diagnosis.

“Sleep is a more complicated issue for patients with a mental health disorder,” says Robert Kowatch, MD, Ph.D, child and adolescent psychiatrist and sleep medicine specialist at Nationwide Children’s. “Different conditions affect sleep differently, as do various medications for these conditions and their related side effects. These patients may be more sensitive to time changes than the typical child or teen.”

For example:

  • Children and teens with bipolar disorder often sleep less when manic, or hypomanic. In certain instances, changes in the circadian rhythm of a person with bipolar disorder can cause a manic episode, and this can be triggered by the change in time.
  • Depression may make it more difficult for a child to fall asleep and stay asleep.
  • Teens with anxiety often struggle with insomnia because their innate anxiety makes it difficult to relax and fall asleep.
  • Children with autism tend to sleep one to two hours less than other children their age, and they also wake up earlier, although researchers currently do not know the cause of this trend.
  • In some patients with attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder, stimulant medications can cause “rebound hyperactivity” close to bedtime, making it difficult for them to fall asleep.

“With many medications, an impact on sleep is a possible side effect, from interfering with falling asleep to resulting in next-day drowsiness,” said Dr. Kowatch, also a professor of psychiatry at The Ohio State University College of Medicine. “Parents and patients should create a plan with their clinician, and make sure dose schedules and amounts are properly followed, such as taking a longer-lasting dose earlier in the day followed by a shorter-lasting dose later in the day, so a stimulant can wear off – if necessary – in time for bed to allow for restful sleep.”

Recommendations for better quality sleep are the same across age groups, regardless of whether a child or teen has a mental health disorder or not. Nationwide Children’s Hospital Big Lots Behavioral Health experts suggest:

  • Devices like phones, tablets or televisions are turned off or removed from the bedroom. An alternative is listening to calming sounds.
  • Do not eat heavy meals before bed. A light, healthy snack is acceptable.
  • Do not drink caffeinated beverages 8 hours before bedtime.
  • Keep bedrooms dark and cool with comfortable bedding.
  • Do not exercise right before bed.

Kids don’t wear their thoughts on their sleeves, so it’s time to give them a voice. For more information about children’s mental health and to help break to break the silence and stigma around mental illness, visit OnOurSleeves.org.

If you or your child need immediate help due to having suicidal thoughts, go to your local emergency room immediately, call the Nationwide Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255) or you can reach the Crisis Text Line by texting “START” to 741-741.

Animated Read-Along: Dr. Seuss Birthday/Read Across America Day

Oh, the Places You’ll Go with reading and education. Farmers Insurance, a brand that stands for knowledge, experience and making people smarter about insurance, is honoring Dr. Seuss on his 115th birthday and celebrating Read Across America Day on March 2 with an integrated campaign across TV, digital and social media.

To support and promote early childhood reading through the legacy of Dr. Seuss, Farmers has created an animated read-along of the New York Times best-seller Oh, the Places You’ll Go! Voiced by Farmers spokescharacter Professor Burke (Academy Award winner JK Simmons), the video is available through digital and social channels, as well as included in the National Education Association’s library of resources for teachers to use in activities marking the day.

 

Farmers has also created a 60-second journey, in the visual and narrative style of Dr. Seuss, through the world of strangely Seussian insurance claims they’ve seen and covered. The animated spot features reimagined claim stories also voiced by JK Simmons as Professor Burke and carries the message that “the more that you see, the more that you’ll know,” reminding people to go out and experience and learn more about the world. It began running in TV, digital video and social placements in the weeks leading up to Dr. Seuss’s birthday.
