Third year Journalism student Tracy from London, who has suffered with Sleep Paralysis since she was around 12, would like to thank everyone who took part by downloading and replying to her questionnaire posted here and on the message board.

To achieve this we need UK-based volunteers to help with their expertise, time and advice Рwe need your ideas and support. Please contact us if you would like to help.

We’re well aware that we haven’t updated this site in quite some time – but there seems to be a steady trickle of visitors, and we are getting a fair few messages of late from Sleep Paralysis sufferers and their relatives, so worth an update I’m sure!
