Abstract

Psoriasis is a chronic skin condition that affects almost 3% of world’s population and is associated with potential adverse effects on mental health. Patients with psoriasis have a higher risk of depression, anxiety and suicide than the general population. The aim is to review articles published in 2010–2019 based on relations of psoriasis and suicide and to provide recommendations for physicians most frequently confronted with psoriasis.
