Welcome to the Stanford Sleep Health and Insomnia Program
During the pandemic, all of our clinical services are offered via a HIPAA compliant video conferencing system.
Our program offers effective, non-drug treatments for adults and children with sleep difficulties.
In our experience, many people with sleep problems continue to suffer because they are unaware that their sleep can be improved non-pharmacologically with lasting results. We offer a variety of short term treatments that are sleep-focused and are based on scientific knowledge of how sleep is regulated.
We also conduct research that is primarily focused on improving the non-pharmacological treatment of sleep disorders. Our clinical and research activities involve training opportunities for professionals.
We are pleased to be able to offer treatment from SHIP clinicians in both English and Spanish, as well as for patients who speak a wide range of languages with the assistance of a hospital interpreter.
