Jeremy is still available to book in person, but you can now stream and download

high-quality videos of our keynote talks and workshops via our Vimeo page.

What we present to you is a fine-tuned machine, complete with oil and a set of tools and instructions. In other words, a series of chaptered high-quality videos offering a compelling insight into living with a mental illness and what true, healthy resilience looks like.

Our talks are available on the new Jeremy Thomas Talks Vimeo channel where they are split into the following series:

Keynote Talk: ‘How to stay sane in an insane world’

This is the mother-load, the talk that has led this project to where it is today. The talk gives a full explanation of Jeremy’s key ideas. Mainly the belief, ‘prevention is better than a cure’, and no matter who you are or the state of your condition, things can always get better.

This talk takes you through Jeremy’s inspiring life story and life-threatening battle with mental illness and his recovery. Whilst this talk covers some very sensitive content it is fused together with the brilliant sense of humour and warm compassion that drives Jeremy, making the talk accessible and relatable to everyone.

There is a high possibility you will laugh and cry. It’s even possible you will do it at the same time. But one thing is certain you will learn something valuable from this authentic talk that will help yourself and others around you.

Crucially it introduces the revolutionary dashboard of dials and explains how we can use it to keep balanced and maintain our mental health.

Talk Teasers


The dials are used in all our talks. They are a graphic, interactive display of our mental health, which need to be managed and kept in balance to prevent mental illness. They offer no cure, but instead are a mindful exercise helping you focus, observe, and adjust your levels, so you may become more balanced and aware.

Lifeboat Workshops

We are also thrilled to have available on our Vimeo page four lifeboat workshops, each thirty minutes long focusing on specific topics of mental health.

A to Z Guide of Mental Health

‘At a time of alarmingly increased prevalence of mental and emotional disorders in both adolescents and adults in the UK, we desperately need to be thinking of preventative strategies… Jeremy’s talks could not be more timely. He has much to say to individuals and institutions… That he does it with such style, humour and compassion is a fine achievement. Highly recommended!’

Christopher Cordess, FRCP., FRCPsych, Emeritus Professor of Forensic Psychiatry, University of Sheffield, UK. Psychoanalyst

‘Jeremy was excellent, a ‘make a difference’ speaker… His webinar was frank, engaging, informative and truly inspirational. It was the most popular session we have ever had and appealed particularly to male employees who are statistically the least likely to admit they have issues or to seek help at an early stage…Without any reservation, I can recommend Jeremy as an extremely engaging and inspirational speaker.’

Anne Bartlett | Manager, Health and Wellbeing, CGI

‘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.”

Stephen Fry – Actor, Author



Whether you work for Buckingham Palace, Poundland or Specsavers, Linklaters, Sky or Easy Jet, the BBC, Inland Revenue, or Collingwood Legal –  we are sure you will agree that good mental health is not only highly important but vital.

Whether you are the CEO, MD, Graduate Trainee or the HR Director, Accounts Clerk or Canteen Manager you need to be aware of the impact that mental health has on your company.

Napoleon Bonaparte once said that an army marches on its stomach. Richard Branson said “Employees come first. If you take care of your employees, they will take care of the clients”.

We are currently living through challenging and, some may say, very insecure times with every day touched by the threat of terrorism, political uncertainty, talks of nuclear war, and financial insecurity at the forefront of people’s anxiety. In an age when everything is being turned upside down and questioned, there has never been a more important time to put mental health at the top of the agenda.

The country, through the government and the media, is finally recognising that mental health is something that should be taken really seriously. We are not advocating a nanny state where everyone is looked after by the corporation. However, we are suggesting a nod of respect to the great 19th Century philanthropists such as Fry, Cadbury, Rowntree and John Lewis.

But if you’re still in any doubt about the importance of good mental health at work, here are 6 stats* that should change your mind…


The number of work hours that are lost each year because of mental health issues including stress, depression, anxiety as well as more serious conditions such as manic depression and schizophrenia. This makes up 11.5% of the total number of sick days for 2016 according to the Office for National Statistics (ONS).


The year on year increase of the number of days taken off work because of mental health issues.


Last year, over half a million Brits suffered from stress at work, resulting in an average of 24 days lost per worker at a cost of more than £5billion.


In a recent survey carried out by MIND, more than one in five UK workers called in sick to avoid work when asked how workplace stress had affected them.


Research from the Mental Health Foundation estimates that the output of people with common mental health problems in the workplace is nine times (or £25bn) more than the cost of mental health problems to economic output. That output is equal to 12.1% of Britain’s GDP.


The percentage of the UK working population in 2015 that had mental health problems.
