Candid at UW-Madison
Wellness that is self-directed, but not alone
Being a student can be hard. Academic demands can be pressing. Social isolation can make us feel alone. The things we know to do to take care of ourselves get pushed to the bottom of the list of things to do.
We’ve been there — and that’s why we’re here.
Candid brings students together on a wellness journey that fosters connections and encourages relevant, relatable, and real conversations. You set the goals — Candid connects you to community and support.
Through Candid relationships, we believe we can make the UW-Madison community healthier.
Everyone is welcome at Candid
Being a college student is tough. You’re faced with daily stress and academic struggles. Sometimes social or financial challenges make everything harder. With so many demands on your time, where do you start? Too often we put our own well-being at the bottom of the priority list.
Candid is here to change that.
We all want to be healthy, so what gets in our way? We believe that people thrive when we’re given the opportunity to forge genuine relationships that support and encourage you to achieve your goals. We accept every student for who and where you are in life. No questions asked. No judgment. We are on your side.
