According to the 2016 UW–Madison Healthy Minds Study, 94% of UW–Madison students do not think any less of a peer who seeks mental health care, and 90% of students who used mental health care found it helpful. As a student, there are a variety of mental health resources available to you at no cost. A few of these resources are listed here.
SilverCloud: A self-guided mental health resource that provides treatment options 24 hours a day, no referral from a mental health or medical provider needed.
