Jeremy Thomas is an author, speaker and all round survivor. As a result of overcoming his own battle with bipolar disorder he co-produced with Dr. Tony Hughes the Emmy Award winning documentary 'Stephen Fry, The Secret Life of a Manic Depressive' and is the co-author of 'You Don't Have to Be Famous to Have Manic Depression - An A-Z Guide to Good Mental Health'. He has written articles for The Times, The Daily Mail and The Telegraph and he has appeared on BBC Television and Radio.
Jeremy reaches out to companies in an attempt to normalise the subject of mental health. The talks are based around Jeremy's own experience of dealing with depression, addiction and manic depression. The major objective is to suggest practical ways to stay mentally fit and get the best out of life. Jeremy attempts to demonstrate why prevention is far better than cure and that humour and talking about this can be the best way of dealing with such a serious subject.
His talk is authentic, funny, passionate, at times hard-hitting and is built around an informative and entertaining slide presentation which lasts for one hour with a Q and A session. It makes the whole subject of good mental health interesting and something to be embraced.
Whether you own a sweet shop or a multi-national, the aim of the talk is for management, employees and HR to gain an insight in to good mental health; not only for themselves but for colleagues around them and to help them understand a family member or close friend encountering mental health problems to leave attendees with a lasting impression that good mental health is as important as good physical health and to dispel any sense of shame or embarrassment that they or others might have about talking about the subject.
