Relationships and Psoriatic Disease 

A man and woman hug while they are surrounded by friends.

When you live with a chronic disease like psoriasis or psoriatic arthritis, you may find yourself sharing with others about how psoriatic disease impacts your life. Relationships with friends, family, and romantic partners are an important part of a healthy and happy life, but talking about your psoriatic disease can often be difficult.

Request your resources on relationships and psoriatic disease and learn more about:

  • How to discuss your disease with others, including example dialogue
  • Navigating romantic relationships and physical intimacy
  • Creating a support system to help you manage your disease

You will also receive the Care Partners booklet, with tips for spouses, partners, children, parents, relatives, or friends who are a part of your support system. This booklet contains suggestions on how they can best support you and help you thrive with psoriatic disease.

(An NPF Patient Navigator will email your resource(s) to you within 1-3 business days.)
