In brief: Yes
Sx of moodiness and sleeping disorders are very broad.
Have yourself checked medically first to see if there're no medical reasons for your sx. In any case, work on a sleep hygiene to deal with sleep issues and you can monitor your mood through a diary/journal to see what contributes to the moodiness (to find out the triggers). Find a mental health professional to guide you through the process.

Some non depression causes include: drugs, alcohol, caffeine, sleep apnea, narcolepsy, any disease of brain including stroke, MS and autoimmune disease, PTSD, shift work. The most common are anxiety and depression. I agree with the psychiatrist being a good start..

Mood changes can affect sleep patterns which in turn can affect moods.
