There has been recent interest in understanding the role that sleep disturbance plays in patients at Clinical High Risk for psychosis (CHR). We assessed sleep disturbance in 194 CHR patients and 66 healthy control subjects and their relationship to symptoms (positive, negative and general functioning). Patients experienced significantly more sleep disturbance than healthy control subjects and their sleep disturbance was related to greater positive and negative symptoms and worse overall functioning. Targeting sleep disturbance in CHR individuals may provide alternative means of treating the CHR syndrome.
