France Psoriasis, an association to accompany and support patients suffering from psoriasis

Psoriasis, a disease still not widely understood, negatively impacts social, personal, and professional life. Beyond the struggle of accepting one's own body, the patient may wish to hide due to fear of ridicule, unkind comments, or the gaze of others. Fortunately, it is possible to find support and guidance through organizations like "France Psoriasis".

The history of the association, France Psoriasis.

Formerly known as the "Association for the Fight Against Psoriasis," the "France Psoriasis" association was founded in November 1983 by a patient named Michèle CORVEST. At the time, she was 32 years old and had been suffering from psoriasis for 22 years. The founder of the association realized that she was unaware of the various existing therapies. She felt neglected by science. For these reasons, she decided to take control of her disease. To do this, a different psychological approach was adopted, based on the knowledge of the benefits and risks associated with treatments.

Psoriasis is generally perceived by patients as a degrading or shameful condition. Thus, the efforts of the "France Psoriasis" association are focused on means to improve the quality of life of those affected. Since its inception, the association has more than 20,000 patients. It benefits from the advice of a scientific committee, as well as the support of SFR (French Society of Rheumatology) and SFD (French Society of Dermatology).
