Significance

If successful, this study could lead to integrated behavioral healthcare in dermatology becoming a best practice in alopecia areata dermatologic care.

Purpose

This project aims to determine the feasibility of offering psychosocial care together with dermatology appointments in a ‘real-world’ dermatology clinic, and measure initial impacts of behavioral healthcare on alopecia areata patients’ psychosocial functioning.
