A new support service for people with psoriasis has been launched by Psoriasis Association. 

The helpline service is available on WhatsApp and will provide another means for people to get in touch with the charity for information and support regarding psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis. 

It will operate between 9am – 5pm on Monday to Thursday, and between 9am – 4.30pm on Fridays, and can be accessed by messaging the Psoriasis Association on 07387716439.

The charity says that psoriasis can leave young people feeling alone and isolated. Over nine out of ten young people with psoriasis have reported being affected by anxiety and depression, but 42% feel too embarrassed to seek help.
