Mental Health Interventions for Atopic Dermatitis: Knowledge Gaps, Pilot Programs, and Future Directions
Clinical and experimental dermatology
Atopic dermatitis (AD) is associated with high levels of psychosocial burden, often resulting in poor mental health outcomes. Despite this association, few studies have evaluated the efficacy of mental health interventions within this population. Utilization of multidisciplinary and peer-led support in addition to equipping patients with psychological tools may be beneficial in improving mental health outcomes. Future research is needed to determine which interventions and formats are desired, effective, and accessible among patients and caregivers with AD.
