The role of sleep in acute crisis events

Description 
Poor sleep is linked to both poor physical and mental health, and can play a role in contributing to acute crisis events that are responded to by ambulance services.We have demonstrated that sleep is an important marker in suicide ideation and attempt ambulance presentations, and are interested in investigating further how sleep is involved in acute crises. This project would involve working on an internationally unique ambulance dataset, and involve coding and classifying sleep issues that occur in the context of alcohol, an other drug or mental health ambulance presentations.
