Sleep alterations constitutes one of the biggest problems that affects life quality and overall performance of people, and have repercussions on low levels of work performance. The general objective of this study was to describe the relation between sleep quality and quantity and the impact on work performance of mental health professionals from Centro Asistencial San Juan de Dios in the state of Jalisco, México.
