Unfortunately, 75 percent of young adults do not reach out for help. Why? Stigma; concern that their bosses, professors, colleagues and friends would judge them, and think they are damaged or not competent. But the truth is, one out of four young adults has some form of mental health issue. You are not alone. No matter how painful or how messed up your life might seem, there is hope and there are many people out there who have struggled with and overcome similar issues. So that’s the goal behind Candid. To let people know they are not alone, that PEOPLE NEED PEOPLE. To fulfill this goal, we have worked tirelessly this past year to launch an application called Candid This platform allows users to upload their photos and post share their story. We hope this provides inspiration and comfort to other users who still think they are alone.
Our mission is to raise awareness about mental health by showing how many of us struggle and ultimately prevail over the same issues.
