Candid at UW Madison
Wellness that is self-directed, but not alone
We all want to be healthy, so what gets in our way? Being a student can be hard. Academic demands can be stressful. 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.
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.
Everyone is welcome at Candid
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.
