Jeremy’s career started at Decca Records working with artists such as Thin Lizzy, The Moody Blues and Judas Priest. After running a successful record label in his early twenties and while attempting to start a new business, he suffered from undiagnosed manic depression – eventually leading to a breakdown and contemplating taking his own life.
Through perseverance, good medical help and support, he recovered and has established himself as a successful speaker and writer. He has written a number of popular novels, as well as co-authored ‘You Don’t Have to be Famous to have Manic Depression – the A-Z Guide to Good Mental Health’ with Dr Tony Hughes, and co-produced the Emmy award winning BBC documentary ‘Stephen Fry. The Secret Life of a Manic Depressive’.
Having battled bipolar disorder and addiction, Jeremy is now a leading speaker on mental health, and has delivered talks to over 25,000 people on a theme of ‘How to Stay Sane in an Insane World – How to Stay Mentally Fit’.
Using his own experiences, he works with a wide variety of audiences to share practical coping mechanisms for good mental health, as well as guidance as to how people can help themselves – and others. Brutally honest and often humorous, his talks have received critical acclaim from some of the UK’s largest businesses, leading public schools and charities alike.
