Awareness

We work hard to bring psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis to people’s attention, inform, and raise awareness of the conditions.

Although psoriasis is a common condition, there is still a need for us to raise awareness amongst the general public, healthcare professionals, Government, and people with the condition themselves. Psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis are complex conditions, and there are many aspects which are misunderstood, under-treated and under-appreciated. There is also lots of 'information' out there which is inaccurate, incorrect, or doesn't give the full picture. We use our information resources, Annual Psoriasis Awareness Week, and collaborative awareness initiatives to take psoriasis fact to a wider audience.

We also engage regularly with other Dermatology and psoriasis stakeholders - as well as key healthcare professional bodies - to work towards raising the profile of Dermatology, and to ensure the voices of people with psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis are heard.

How can you help?

There are loads of ways for teenagers and young people to get involved in raising awareness of psoriasis.

You could get involved by taking on a task or challenge to fundraise for the Psoriasis Association, allowing us to carry on our work to support, inform and advise those affected by psoriasis, raise awareness of the condition and fund research.

You could also get involved by sharing your experience, giving advice and tips and lending support to those on our forum.

Perhaps you would be willing to deliver some of our information and promotional materials to your local GP surgery or university health centre? Or maybe you're willing to share your psoriasis experiences with the media? If you think you might be able to help in these ways, get in touch with us now!
