Mindfulness and Psoriasis study

Mindfulness-based Self-Help for Psoriasis-Related Distress in Young People

We would like to find out whether mindfulness skills are helpful for young people who experience psychological distress in relation to having Psoriasis.

Mindfulness is a type of mental training which has been found to improve quality of life and skin clearing for people who have Psoriasis. We hope to see whether an audio course can be used to teach these skills effectively to young people with Psoriasis, who also experience difficulties such as low mood, stress, or anxiety.

This study is being conducted by researchers from the University of Sheffield. If you are aged between 16 - 22 and are interested in taking part, please click on the link below. This will take you to the study website, where you can read more information.


If eligible, you can choose to take part, and will receive the Mp3 file either straight away or after a waiting period. You will also be asked to complete a set of questionnaires 2-3 times during the study, to see whether the materials are effective. If you know someone else who might be interested in taking part, please feel free to forward this link.
