Why We Need Your Support

It’s no surprise that the pandemic, divisive politics, and racial injustices have contributed to a growing mental health crisis for many people. What may surprise you is knowing that there are qualities of a healthy mind and resilience that are more trainable than we may realize.

Researchers at the Center for Healthy Minds at UW–Madison are studying a new healthy minds framework that suggests well-being can be cultivated through practices such as meditation in daily life.
