Overview: Humans are thinking machines and most people have similar thought processes. Most 
people have reasonable, measured, moderate thoughts. And while there are many variations on this 
theme, these thoughts occur on a bell curve with most people being in the meaty part of the 
Those with major depressive disorder (major depression), however, often have very extreme 
thoughts and their thought processes often exist on the very far ends of the bell curve. This can 
make understanding how a person with major depression acts very challenging as these actions are 
driven by thought processes the average person doesn't experience. While these thoughts may seem 
“crazy” at first, it's important to realize that these thoughts are simply an extreme part of the 
human experience that do fall along a continuum that is experienced by everyone. 
Understanding these thought processes is the first step in understanding why a person with major 
depression does what he or she does and how you can help a person with major depression deal with 
his or her own illness either from a personal or professional perspective. This knowledge will 
breed a deeper understanding of the experience of this serious mental illness and increase 
compassion towards those facing it. 
That's where this webinar comes in. This webinar aims to give attendees a look into the brain of 
a person with major depressive disorder. Attendees will learn important facts about depression. 
The attendee will also hear about general thought processes present in major depression as well 
as specific cognitive distortions such as mental filtering and labeling and how they appear in 
those with major depression. Techniques on how to help someone experiencing distorted thoughts 
are given and helpful therapies are outlined. 
Additionally, attendees are encouraged to ask questions of the instructor who, herself, has been 
dealing with major depression as a part of bipolar disorder for 20 years and openly shares her 
own experiences with the illness. igma both in private and public settings both for those with 
mental illness and for professionals. Current anti-stigma strategies and politically correct 
language will also be discussed. 
The attendee will leave this webinar with a greater understanding of the many facets of mental 
illness stigma and armed with strategies to fight those negative effects.

Speaker Profile Natasha Tracy is an award-winning writer, speaker, advocate and bipolar disorder expert. She has 
written thousands of articles on all manner of mental illness and mental health topics.
