Although the relationship between sleep problems and suicide has been well established, there has been little investigation as to why this association exists. Emotion regulation has been suggested as a possible mediator in this association (Littlewood et al., 2017), but it has not been formally tested. The current work sought to determine whether depleted emotion regulation capacity mediates the association between poor sleep continuity and suicidal ideation. A sample of 29 undergraduate…

The Interplay Between Sleep and Emotion Regulation: Conceptual Framework Empirical Evidence and Future Directions
TLDR
It is proposed that the connectivity between the emotional centers of the brain — the prefontal cortex and the amygdala — is in part dependent on the homeostatic sleep system such that connectivity between these brain networks is higher when rested and lower when sleep deprived.

This research examined the impact of a basic biological process—namely, sleep—on relationship conflict, specifically testing whether poor sleep influences the degree, nature, and resolution of

TLDR
This is the first human experimental study to demonstrate that, despite comparable reductions in total sleep time, partialSleep loss from sleep continuity disruption is more detrimental to positive mood than partial sleep loss from delaying bedtime, even when controlling for concomitant increases in negative mood.

TLDR
It was found that rumination and trait anxiety fully mediated the associations between loneliness and depressed mood as well as poor sleep quality; these relationships held after testing all other factors.
Meta-analysis of sleep disturbance and suicidal thoughts and behaviors.
TLDR
Sleep disturbances in general, as well as insomnia and nightmares individually, appear to represent a risk factor for suicidal thoughts and behavior, and this proposition is further bolstered by the result that depression did not show risk moderation.
