Psoriasis Awareness Week 2019

This year's Psoriasis Awareness Week will run from Monday 28th October to Sunday 3rd November, with World Psoriasis Day taking place on Tuesday 29th October.

Plans are now well underway for this year’s Psoriasis Awareness Week in which we will work hard to raise awareness of both psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis and also of the Psoriasis Association and the services and support we offer to people with both conditions. 

We are pleased to announce that this year's theme is treating psoriasis before, during and after childbirth. Planning for a family is a very exciting time but for many parents with psoriasis, this can mean worrying about what treatments they will be able to use and what effect changing treatments may have on their psoriasis.

We want to get as many people as possible – including schools, workplaces, communities and health professionals - involved in this year’s event and to help you participate in the week, we have designed a handy Supporters Pack for you to download for inspiration.

The pack contains information on all the ways you can get involved during Awareness Week, tips and suggestions on holding your own event and how to get any resources you may need.

Contacting the Media

During Psoriasis Awareness Week, we are keen for as many people as possible to get involved! One of the best ways to do this is to contact your local newspaper, village magazine or media outlet and to tell them what you are doing for Awareness Week, details of any event you are holding or to simply share your psoriasis story.  

We’ve put together a template letter / email you can personalise and use to contact your local newspaper or radio station. Their contact details can usually be found online.

Don’t forget to contact them as early as possible. This will allow journalists to plan ahead and will give the best chance of coverage.

Help us to change the way people think about psoriasis!
