I'm not sure there: Are statistics on this. What we do know is that treating sleep disorders can and does improve psychological health. Conversely, most mental illnesses are associated with sleep disturbances. The take home message appears to be that our health is at least partly dependent on good quality and quantity of sleep.

Big: There is a significant relationship between insomnia and mental health. For those with both insomnia and a mood disorder, about a third developed the insomnia first. Anxiety in particular appears to have a strong relationship with insomnia. Here are some references: http://j.Mp/uctmid and http://j.Mp/uctuya.
