This chapter provides an evidence-based review of the seven categories of DSM-5 sleep-wake disorders. Specific sleep-wake disorders vary widely in their clinical manifestations, etiologies, treatment, and the level of evidence supporting those treatments. Sleep-wake disorders are prevalent, increase the risk of many common mental and substance use disorders, and exacerbate these disorders, with which they typically co-occur. Unless properly treated in their own right, sleep-wake disorders can impair treatment response and worsen the long-term course of mental disorders. Thus, it is important for psychiatrists and other mental health practitioners to understand the diagnosis and treatment of sleep-wake disorders and when to refer patients to a sleep medicine specialist.
