Psoriasis One to One Mentor Program
Are you newly diagnosed? Have questions? Need to talk?
Psoriasis and/or psoriatic arthritis volunteer mentors are here for you. Sign up to be matched with an experienced mentor who can:
- Provide you with disease and treatment information (not medical advice)
- Help you find resources you need (access to care, find a psoriasis expert in your area, opportunities to get involved and empowered)
- Assist you with setting goals for a healthier lifestyle
- Provide emotional support
Feedback from Psoriasis One to One participants and volunteers:
"It's just been such a blessing to have someone to talk to. I can be a real person and not a disease. It's offered me so much help and so much healing." Cathy B., Omaha, Neb., One to One participant
"When I was first diagnosed, I was disheartened. My mentor made the diagnosis a little more bearable. I really feel like this program helped me get through the frustration of the initial shock of the diagnosis" Nicole S, Marion, Iowa, One to One participant
"There were a lot of people who helped me with emotional support [when I was first diagnosed] and I really needed that. One to One is a perfect way for me to reciprocate." Matthew K., Dallas, Texas, One to One volunteer mentor
How do I sign up and what should I expect?
You can sign up right now to be matched with your mentor by completing this online form. Include a little information about yourself and what type of support or information you would like to receive. For example, are you looking for information about a specific treatment? Do you want to connect with someone who has tried a biologic drug? Or do you just want to connect with someone else who has the same disease as you? After you submit your request, your assigned mentor will send you an introductory email within three to five business days.
