Description

The Myth of Normal: Depression, Anxiety and Addictions from a New Perspective

For all our progress in understanding and treating mental illness, it continues to be a subject of misapprehension, prejudice and stigmatization. Very few families are not touched by at least some aspects of mental dysfunction. This talk will explore the causes and "normality" of depression, anxiety and addictions in our society.


A renowned speaker, and bestselling author, Dr. Gabor Maté (pronunciation: GAH-bor ma-TAY) is highly sought after for his expertise on a range of topics.

“Gabor Maté’s connections – between the intensely personal and the global, the spiritual and the
medical, the psychological and the political – are bold, wise and deeply moral.”
Naomi Klein, Author & Award-winning Journalist

“Maté’s resonant, unflinching analysis of addiction today shatters the assumptions underlying our
War on Drugs.”
Norm Stamper, Retired Former Police Chief of Seattle & Member, Law Enforcement Against Prohibition

“Gabor Maté is a common-sense doctor and truth-teller. By looking at causes and their effects, he
helps you find your way home.”
Jamie Lee Curtis, “Author, Activist, Alcoholic”

“I think a big part of gaining insight into substance abuse is an examination of its underlying
psychological and emotional components. This is at the core of Dr. Maté’s approach.”
Rob Reiner, Filmmaker, Actor, Producer

Dr. Maté weaves together scientific research, case histories and his own insights and experience to present a broad perspective that enlightens and empowers people to promote their own healing and that of those around them. www.drgabormate.com
