“Jeremy was a very engaging, funny and informative speaker who captured our students’ attention with his life stories and real life issues.”
“Fear and shame make the prison of mental illness in families worse. Jeremy’s talks … are compassionate, informative, honest and very funny: humanising what can be distressing for the sufferer and those around them. I wish I’d heard him speak as a young person.”
