Abstract

Introduction:Sleep is a fundamental aspect of both physical and mental health, however the prevalence of clinical and behavioural sleep problems in Australia is concerning. There has been no research to date concerning the Australian public's conceptualisation of what constitutes a sleep problem that warrants consultation with a general practitioner. This means we have little insight into the factors which drive help‐seeking behaviour for sleep problems in the Australian community. The overall aim of the study was to identify the number of, and characteristics of, participants who experience sleep problems but fail to exhibit relevant help seeking behaviours.
