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.

The quality and quantity of sleep was not significantly associated with job performance (p=0,474). They also were not associated with errors or accidents at work (p=0,655).
