Abstract

The objective of the current study was to examine the relationship between depression, anxiety, sleep self-efficacy, and sleep quality among college students by using both objective measures and self-reported data. Participants included 27 undergraduate students from a small liberal arts college who wore ActiGraph wristbands for a period of seven nights. Participants also completed anxiety, depression, sleep self-efficacy, and subjective sleep quality scales. Results indicated that higher sleep self-efficacy scores were associated with lower anxiety and depression scores. Higher subjective sleep quality was associated with higher sleep self-efficacy scores and lower depression and anxiety scores. This study supports the need for emphasis on the importance of improving subjective sleep quality which in turn may influence mental health issues.
