Restoring Effective Sleep Tranquility (REST)
REST is a program at Colorado State University that has been offering group-based and individualized sleep improvement education and support to qualifying post-9/11 student veterans since 2015. The program is delivered by occupational therapists with advanced clinical training in cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia.
The goal of REST is to enhance the sleep quality, sleep quantity, and the mental health of injured veterans seeking a college degree through the development and delivery of an evidence-based and sustainable 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 veterans and their families wherever they may be located.
Directed by Dr. Aaron Eakman, PhD, OTR/L (member of the American Academy of Sleep Medicine) in the Department of Occupational Therapy, REST received its initial funding from Wounded Warrior Project.
