Psoriasis Awareness Week runs annually and aims to inform and raise awareness of psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis. This year the awareness week is running from Saturday 29th October – Saturday 5th November and talkhealth are working to support Psoriasis Association with their awareness activities.

PsoriasisIS Awareness Poster


The main campaign launching this year is PsoriasisIS – a campaign to encourage everyone with experience of psoriasis to speak up about what the condition means to them. Whether you have psoriasis yourself, are a medical professional who treats people with psoriasis, a researcher who studies the condition, or a person who supports a loved one who lives with psoriasis.

Some ideas might be:

PsoriasIS… Treatable
PsoriasIS… Life-changing
PsoriasIS… Something I wish I knew more about

To get involved and share what psoriasis is to you download the handy printout from the Psoriasis Awareness website, write what psoriasis is to you, it can be a word, sentence or short paragraph (keep in mind the pictures will be shared via social media) and snap a picture of yourself holding your message. Email your picture to with the subject line ‘Psoriasis Awareness Week’. Please also share your picture on social media during Psoriasis Awareness Week, using the hashtag #psoaware.


Keep an eye open for lots more Psoriasis Awareness Week activities happening on social media using the hashtag #PsoAware.

One Response to Psoriasis Awareness Week 2016 – What Does Psoriasis Mean to You?

  1. Ann Kelley

    I can relate to this article because for about 10 years I dreamed of healing my Psoriasis.

    I tried just about everything I could think of but nothing seemed to work.

    Then I did something different and now I’m healthy and handsome again. I healed my Psoriasis in 7 days.

    Best of luck!
