Background: Adolescent’s physical and mental growth depends on getting enough sleep. It is regarded as one of the main elements that contribute to the well-being of one's physical and mental health, particularly in teens. Even while adolescents still require sleep. It has been calculated that adolescents require up to 9.2 hours of sleep every day. Moreover, over half of adolescents experience poor sleep quality, and sleep issues are widespread among them. Thus, it can be said that among adolescents, getting poor-quality sleep is becoming a serious issue. Bedtime, wake-up time, and length of sleep are examples of sleep patterns. Adolescents who do not get enough sleep are more prone to being impulsive, hyperactive, distracted, inattentive, and uninterested. Inadequate sleep has been linked to obesity, stunted growth, poor nutrition, inadequate sustenance, and mental health problems. In adolescents, daytime restlessness and mental health have an impact on overall sleep duration. When it comes to academic achievement, enough sleep is superior to inadequate sleep.

Methods: A descriptive cross-sectional study conducted on 1000 adolescents between the ages of 12 and 17 participated in the study. Students were given a questionnaire with demographic data and items from the PSQI scale. The main parameters evaluated were seven: subjective sleep quality, subjective sleep latency, length, habitual sleep efficiency, sleep disruptions, use of sleeping drugs, and dysfunction during the day.

Results: The study findings indicate there was a significant association between age (X2 = 21.30, df=4, p<0.001), gender (X2 = 6.30, df=1, p=0.001), and family type (X2 = 13.42, df=1, p<0.001) with poor sleep quality. Furthermore, the results indicate there was a significant association between low-quality sleep and sickness (X2 = 18.96, df = 1, p<0.001), as well as between mobile screen time (X2 = 19.65, df = 1, p<0.001) and poor sleep quality.

Conclusion: In this study, the prevalence of poor sleep quality was found to be relatively high (21.0%).
