Psoriatic Arthritis Patient Education & Resources

Psoriatic arthritis (PsA), an inflammatory, autoimmune condition, typically occurs with psoriasis. In addition to the effects on the skin, it attacks joints and can also affect internal organs and the eyes. Because its symptoms can be similar to those of other diseases, it can be tricky to diagnose.

Everyone’s experience living with PsA is different, but having information, resources and support can help you navigate your journey with this disease, whether you’ve been recently diagnosed or you’re a veteran of this disease. Explore this site to learn more about PsA and what to expect when you’re diagnosed, as well as treatments and how to conquer everyday challenges. You’ll find support from others living with PsA, ways to stay active and manage your disease, opportunities to advocate for yourself and others – so you can say Yes to living with PsA.

About 20% to 30% of those with psoriasis also have psoriatic arthritis.


PsA is associated with a 55% increased risk of developing cardiovascular disease.

Up to 40% of PsA patients have three or more related health conditions.
