We are pleased to announce the launch of a new hints and
tips resource developed with Professor Chris Bundy for people living with
psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis on coping well during this challenging time.
With the current Coronavirus outbreak dominating
the headlines it is not surprising that people are feeling anxious and worried
about what may happen next. For some people with psoriasis, stress can
make the condition flare, so
looking after your psychological wellbeing is as important
as caring for your physical health.
With this in mind, we have teamed up with Professor Chris
Bundy (Professor in Behavioural Medicine at Cardiff University) to create a
resource for people living with psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis on how to
manage their worry about their condition and its treatment, as well as their
concerns about COVID-19.
The tips cover a range of topics including managing your worry,
expressing worry and anxiety, coping with isolation and when to access help and
support. There is also a daily schedule, to help people to structure their
day and stay engaged and active whilst spending more time at home.
