The National Psoriasis Foundation provides you with the help you need while promoting research to find a cure.

Over 8 million Americans have psoriasis. Nearly a third of them will develop psoriatic arthritis. For over 50 years, we've provided education, support and community to the millions of individuals impacted by these chronic diseases, together called psoriatic disease. And we won't stop until we find a cure.
