YP Face it - aged 13 to 17 years? Worried about ichthyosis and the way you look?

The Centre for Appearance Research, University of the West of England and the
Ichthyosis Support Group have teamed up and are looking for young people to test out
in their own homes, a new 7 week online support programme.

Called ‘YP Face It’, it’s for young people who have worries because of a condition that affects appearance. It has 7 weekly sessions and uses interactive and learning activities, illustrations, videos, audio, photos and advice from other young people with a condition that affects appearance.

The aim is to help young people feel and act more positively and confidently.

If you’re interested in finding out more about this study, please contact the
researcher Catrin Griffiths on 0117 328 3947 or email.
