In brief: Most of them
Many psychiatric problems can result in disturbing the natural ability to get to sleep or stay asleep.
Anxiety disorders can disrupt an individuals ability to relax and allow the natural sleep process to occur. Clinical depression also disrupts sleep and can shorten total sleep time. Even major situational stressors can disrupt our natural tendency to fall asleep. Take care of your mental health.
