My JIA

An information booklet for children, parents, carers and schools about managing life with juvenile idiopathic arthritis.

Our booklet called My JIA is a comprehensive guide to living with juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA). It is aimed at anyone who has been diagnosed with JIA, as well as their parents, carers and schools. It is packed full of information that will help you on your own journey with JIA, from diagnosis through to treatments and looking ahead to the long-term. All of the information has been checked by a multi-disciplinary team of health professionals, as well as patients and parents, and will help you understand your condition better.

How to get a copy:

  • My JIA is available as a free digital download here. We encourage you to provide a copy to your school, as it is full of information for them about your condition and how they can help and support you.

  • My JIA is included in our Little Box Of Hope packs for newly diagnosed families (via referral from your rheumatology team).

  • We want to make this resource available to as many people as possible, which is why it is primarily available as a free digital download. However, we have a limited number of printed copies available and you can order one here for £3 (We have kept this charge as low as possible and it purely covers the cost of printing and postage; we are only able to post to UK addresses).
