We've partnered with Sleepy's, The Mattress Experts

19 February 2024

Mates4Mates is excited to announce a partnership with Sleepy’s to support veteran health and wellbeing through a good night’s sleep.

Sleep is our internal reset button. For veterans, sleep can ease psychological symptoms, stabilise mood, reduce chronic conditions, improve their ability to cope with pain, and assist in the processing of emotionally charged memories via dreams. 

Sleepy’s understands the important role sleep plays in the mental and physical health of veterans and will be sponsoring the Mates4Mates Online Sleep Program for 2024. 

As an organisation dedicated to supporting veterans' health and wellbeing, Sleepy’s CEO, Shane Flynn is thrilled to announce the partnership with Mates4Mates. 

"Sleep is not just a necessity; it's a crucial component of mental and physical wellness, particularly for our veterans,” Shane said. 

“Through this sponsorship of the Mates4Mates Online Sleep Program, Sleepy’s is demonstrating its commitment to ensuring our veterans have access to the resources they need for restorative sleep and overall wellbeing.” 

“Together, we can make a meaningful difference in the lives of those who have served our country." 

Mates4Mates Chief Executive Officer, Emma Whitehead also welcomed the new partnership. 

“Supporting the mental health of veterans and their families is one of our key priorities at Mates4Mates. The Online Sleep Program helps participants develop healthier sleeping behaviours and explore sleep from a physiological, psychological and practical perspective,” Emma said. 

“Sleepy’s sponsorship will allow us to continue delivering skills-based clinical group programs to improve the health and wellbeing of veterans.” 

The Online Sleep Program will run at various times throughout 2024, with the first program kicking off later this month.
