Resource launched for people with psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis on coping well with the COVID-19 pandemic

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.

Mental Health 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.
