Suicide risk among patients with psoriasis
The Dermatologist. 26(7). 2018.
According to a recent study, it was found that while patients with psoriasis did not have higher risk for suicide, there was an elevation in the frequency of mental health comorbidities in psoriasis patients. Individuals who are in direct contact with patients and who play a role in their care should keep a vigilant watch for signs of changes in mental health as well as physical health. “Healthcare professionals caring for patients with psoriasis should continue to monitor and tackle effectively the psychological needs of these individuals.”
