Clinical Sleep Research Unit
Welcome to the Clinical Sleep Research Unit
The CSRU represents a unique collaboration between researchers, clinicians and service providers in the UK. Our mission is to improve the understanding and evidence-based management of insomnia and chronic sleep disturbance through applied research, knowledge transfer and professional training. Established in 2003 the CSRU provides a focus for expertise in the psychological management of sleep and insomnia, and enjoys links with other centres of sleep research both in the UK and internationally. Our activities cover the epidemiology of sleep, the psychology of insomnia, and the evaluation and service delivery of treatments for insomnia. If you would like to know more about our activities please contact us at: CSRU-Enquiries@lboro.ac.uk.
If you are looking for help with a current sleep problem, we have provided a page of information and advice which you may find helpful. Please note, however, that as a research centre we do not provide a clinical service and cannot discuss individual cases.
For the past 10 years the Sleep Research Centre at Loughborough University has been developing treatment models, training programmes, self-help materials and treatment outcome measures for use in NHS research programmes. This experience has been crystallised in a 2-day training course for qualified healthcare professionals. Click here to find out more about our Insomnia Management Training for Clinical Staff.
The CSRU is directed by Professor Kevin Morgan.
