A message of hope
through adversity

Psoriasis affects millions of people around the world
– not just physically, but also socially, emotionally, and financially

Isolation and more: the everyday burden of psoriasis goes beyond the skin

A truly powerful psoriasis community will always stay connected, informed, and united. #EverydayPsoriasis is about showing the value of community in supporting one another through the everyday challenges of the condition.

A treatable disease with an active global community

It is normal to feel challenged and have ups and downs with psoriasis. And everyone has an individual experience of their disease. There is no ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ way to feel.

But #EverydayPsoriasis is about showing that you are not alone – that there are others who can help. Whether another patient, a healthcare professional or a patient organization, there is a community of people who you can reach out to for support.

And while there is no cure for psoriasis at the moment, there are lots of different types of treatment and lifestyle changes that could help you to manage it.

It is not unusual to feel isolated and even hopeless sometimes – when times are hardest, there are people and organizations who can support. And by being part of a community, you can help others who are affected by the disease

Who can you turn to?

World Psoriasis Day is a global event to support and unite those affected by psoriasis and/or psoriatic arthritis.
But psoriasis affects people every day, and beyond this important annual awareness-raising activity, there are those you can turn to for everyday support
