We investigated the mediating effect of burnout and depression on the relationship between adolescent academic stress and sleep quality. Participants comprised 757 adolescents aged 12–18 years, who completed self-report questionnaires assessing academic stress, sleep quality, school burnout, and depression. Results showed that adolescent academic stress was negatively correlated with sleep quality, and that depression and school burnout were also negatively associated with sleep quality. Results of a multiple mediation model showed that adolescent academic stress was not only directly correlated with sleep quality, but was also indirectly associated with sleep quality through the mediating effect of school burnout and depression, as well as through the sequential mediating effect from school burnout to depression. Theoretical and practical implications are discussed.
