Restoring Effective Sleep Tranquility (REST)

REST was a Wounded Warrior Project grant funded initiative within the Occupational Therapy Department at Colorado State University that offered individualized sleep improvement education and support to qualifying post-9/11 student veterans 2015 through 2018. The program was delivered by occupational therapists with advanced clinical training in cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia and was directed by Dr. Aaron Eakman, PhD, OTR/L, FAOTA.

REST resulted in improved sleep quality, mental health, participation, and wellbeing of injured veterans at CSU through the development and delivery of an evidence-based sleep improvement program. By making the program’s instructional materials, methods, and outcomes nationally available through this website, we seek to positively impact sleep outcomes for injured military veterans and their families wherever they may be located.

If you are seeking sleep services through the Occupational Therapy Department’s Center for Community Partnerships – please visit our Sleep Services website.
