Piece of Mind sleep special

In the latest episode of the Piece of Mind podcast we're joined by Dr Ajay Thapar and Dr Katie Lewis to talk about sleep, insomnia and mental health.

Dr Ajay Thapar is a GP with an interest in sleep and neurodevelopmental disorders. He was recently awarded a fellowship from the Winston Churchill Memorial Trust to travel to California to learn more about the latest developments in the diagnosis and treatment of sleep disorders.

Dr Katie Lewis is a researcher at Cardiff University’s MRC Centre for Neuropsychiatric Genetics and Genomics. Her work focuses on the relationship between sleep disruption and mood disorders like bipolar and major depression.
