Emotional wellbeing and skin conditions

Do you have a question related to a skin condition that doesn't fit in any of the other boards? Perhaps you're living with ichthyosis, hyperhidrosis or something else we've not covered? Your questions and discussions can be posted here.

Emotional wellbeing and skin conditions

There are now some really good resources to support people living with skin conditions available and many people will feel that such a development is long overdue. The British Association of Dermatologists in collaboration with a range of experts has developed skinsupport.org.uk which provides a good range of information and access to some free self-help materials. Also some specialist NHS wellbeing services have recently been set up specifically to help people living with a range of long term conditions. For example, in Sheffield we are just launching a new IAPT/Health and Wellbeing service for people living with skin conditions. If you live in this area and want to find out more you can contact your GP or Dermatologist.
