BAD launch Skin Support Website

The British Association of Dermatologists is currently in the process of evaluating its Skin Support website, which aims to provide psychological support to people with skin conditions.

As part of our evaluation we want to get feedback about the site from people with skin conditions, so if you could please share the following message with your members and supporters that would be appreciated:


The British Association of Dermatologists has launched a website called Skin Support. The website contains resources on skin conditions and support leaflets aimed at helping people to address common problems sometimes associated with skin conditions such as how to regain confidence and low mood.

If you are living with a skin condition or have a child or partner that has a skin condition we would really appreciate your feedback on the Skin Support website. Providing feedback can help to make sure the website is a helpful resource for anyone living with a skin condition. To take part please follow the link

The survey is being conducted by researchers at the University of Sheffield and the University of York on behalf of the British Association of Dermatologists. The survey has ethical approval from the University of Sheffield Psychology department. All information you provide will be confidential. You do not have to take part and can decide to stop completing the survey at any time.

As a thank you for completing this survey there is an opportunity to be entered into a prize draw to win one of six £25 amazon vouchers. To be entered into the prize draw you will be asked for your email address when you have completed the survey.

You will be directed to the survey and the website link will be provided.
