4 Your Health: not getting enough sleep is depressing; impact of sexual harassment at work and in schools

Posted: Updated:

Sexual harassment in the workplace. Most Americans feel their employers have failed to address the problem.

That's according to a new American Psychological Association poll of 1,500 adults. Only one-third of respondents said their company has added more training or imposed stricter policies in recent months.

But while employer may be slow to make changes about half of U.S. workers say they are now more likely to report workplace sexual harassment.

LGBT teens harassed

Many gay, lesbian, bi-sexual and transgender teens report living in fear of being harassed.

Nearly three-quarters of LGBT teens said they have been verbally threatened because of their sexual identity. 95 percent said they have trouble sleeping. Transgender teens were the most likely to feel unsafe at school.

Importance of a normal night's sleep

People with irregular sleep cycles may be more prone to depression and bipolar disorder.

Researchers in the UK measured the activity patterns of over 91,000 adults for one week. People who stayed up late or napped a lot during the day were more likely to have mood swings and depression than those with regular sleep patterns.
