We are the patient support organization for people suffering from psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis throughout
our province. Our goal is to provide up to date information and education combined with real time support in the
hopes of empowering fellow patients to take control of their disease, get their symptoms under control and
reclaim their lives.
This group is made up of psoriasis patients as well as leading dermatologists throughout the province. Over the coming months we will be developing an online resource centre of treatment information, current research and how to get the help you need. We are here for psoriasis patients and their loved ones.
If you would like more information on our organization or anything psoriasis related, would like to get involved please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org We really want to hear from you and want to keep you up to date on all the latest news so please drop us a line. That way when events are planned such as public awareness meetings or exciting breakthroughs happen you will be the first to know.
We are also a registered charity dedicated to psoriasis cure and treatment research, education and support. If you would like to offer financial support please let us know, charitable receipts will be issued.

Susanne is originally from St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador. She has been working in Dermatology research for over 15 years. Having witnessed firsthand the great strides that have been made in psoriasis treatment in the past two decades she believes very strongly in patient support, advocacy and collaboration in order to help patients make the treatment choices that are best for them.
Helen was one of the founding members of PSNL in the mid 1990’s. She has suffered from psoriasis for most of her adult life. Her battle started before doctors could diagnose psoriasis and before there were dermatologists practicing in Newfoundland and Labrador. While enduring numerous treatments throughout her life, Helen always wanted to reach out to others with the disease to provide support where she could and educate them about treatment options. Today she has found successful treatments for her psoriasis but continues her work with PSNL and to be an advocate for psoriasis patients.
Deva joined the PSNL executive in 2012 to connect with the community of psoriasis sufferers in the Province and to help provide support to those who had not yet found successful treatment options. She developed severe psoriasis at age 11 and tried many treatment methods until finally achieving long term relief from her symptoms in 2008. She strives to continue PSNL’s education and outreach work so that people in Newfoundland and Labrador will have a local source of information and support when needed.
