Abstract:This cross-sectional study investigates the correlations between mental health complaints and quality of sleep during the COVID-19 pandemic from late 2020 to early 2021. The findings show a statistically significant positive correlation between health complaints and quality of sleep, whereas an individual showing high distress and/or many negative symptoms of mental health complaints, their respective quality of sleep would also be bad. This would have consequences for the society, but especially for clinical practices, as the need for clinical treatment may increase. The overall effect of the pandemic situation needs to be assessed further and more deeply with a bigger sample. The study concludes with an observation of non-normal data distribution, that furthermore indicates a positive correlation between mental health complaints, in this case anxiety and/or depression and quality of sleep.
