People connected by computer, phone, and tablet screens in a thriving online community

5 Years of Joint Connection & Community

The internet fuels people’s ability to connect, trade ideas, and solve problems. For the past 5 years, this has been just our goal here at

We consider ourselves an online community of brave patient stories, connections, and specialized resources for those who live with this chronic condition.

And with a humble perspective, we're just the catalyst here. The courage and shared experiences of those living daily with psoriatic arthritis elevate this community and seamlessly provide meaningful recognition, respect, and support to those who need it.

Finding connection in community, straight from patient leaders

There is no community in the world like the psoriatic arthritis community. Those who live with this painful condition find ways to support each other, offer encouragement and understanding, and make one another feel a little less alone.

This is no different for our advocates - the brave ones who share their personal experiences directly with you.

Long term advocate, Diane shares how the community overall has helped her. While Annelyse shares the emotional healing that came by connecting with the psoriatic community. While Melissa provides insight into the importance of advocacy and honesty.
