Having psoriasis and/or psoriatic arthritis can sometimes feel isolating, but it doesn’t have to be that way! That’s why we are sharing your stories, to help others realise they do not have to experience their condition alone.

Your stories have helped to start hundreds of honest and open conversations between people affected by psoriasis and/or psoriatic arthritis. We believe that no one should have to cope with their condition alone, and hearing from people who have shared similar experiences can help others to make sense of their psoriasis and how it makes them feel.

You can read the stories people have shared with us below by clicking on the individual names.

If you’d like to take part and share your own experiences you can find out how to get involved here.
