about

Going to university or college is supposed to be great: it’s a chance to reinvent yourself, enjoy new freedoms, impress professors with your keen intellect, and basically have the time of your life.

But if it’s “all good” why is it sometimes hard just to get out of bed and go to class? Let alone juggle a full course load and a part-time job and make it through your mid-terms?

Research shows that mental health issues – including depression and anxiety – are increasing among undergraduate students, but few access help when they need it.

It’s All Good (Unless It’s Not) is here to help. With compassion and insight, Nicole Malette draws on her own experiences and findings as a student, undergraduate instructor, and researcher to explore frequent sources of undergraduate distress – such as social isolation, academic stress, parental pressure, and financial difficulties. She outlines concrete steps you can take to meet common challenges head-on – and where to turn when you need more support.

Along the way, she shares the latest research about how your family background, cultural identity, or sexuality can influence your experiences of university, and why it really is a good idea to eat more vegetables.

Packed with self-care strategies, quick tips, accounts from students, and fascinating facts, this is an indispensable mental-health guide for anyone on the path to a college or university degree.

Nicole Malette is an instructor and PhD candidate in the Department of Sociology at the University of British Columbia. Her work focuses on how post-secondary institutional contexts impact undergraduate student mental health and mental health service-use.
