• This is a test that will give you a basic assessment of whether or not you suffer from insomnia. 

     

    Should the test determine that you suffer from insomnia, you will be given advice on how to pursue treatment, and how to improve your sleep quality on your own. 

     

    Note: the results of this test should not override the advice of your personal physician.
