Jeremy Thomas

 

Jeremy Thomas is a complete original. His writing, like his life, is a whirlwind of brilliance, wonder and blunder, by turns hilarious and terrifying. Highly recommended.

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.
