See Psoriasis: Look Deeper is an ongoing campaign looking at the link between psoriasis and mental health.


We aim to look beyond the physical aspects of psoriasis and recognise the bigger life impacts associated with the disease, including emotional wellbeing and quality of life. The collaboration was brought together in 2012, and has worked with patients and health care professionals in a number of ways to raise awareness of this important issue.
