Foothold partner with Sleepstation

The IET’s charity has just celebrated its 130th birthday and is offering free sleep support and guidance from sleep coaches Sleepstation from the comfort of your own home.

Sleep is as important to your health as diet and exercise. And sleep is just as important for your mental health. But one in three of us will have problems with sleep at some point and because we don't know where to turn we are more likely to suffer in silence.

If people do try to address sleep problems, they might resort to taking sleeping pills to get control over their sleep. However, sleeping pills do not provide natural sleep, they are often ineffective and potentially harmful. Getting the right sleep support is vital to your health. That's why Foothold have partnered with Sleepstation to provide free support and guidance for engineers and their families who think they might have a sleep problem.

Sleepstation do an initial assessment to understand what kind of sleep problems you're having. Sleepstation then offer similar support you'd get in clinics - but from the comfort of your own home. Trained experts will work with you to help you put what you've learned into practice.  If after the initial assessment you need further treatment, this is made available for current and former IET members and their families.
