How to stay Sane in an Insane World

We were delighted to welcome Jeremy (Ra71) who is a regular conference speaker on mental health.

In typical OG style his talk poked a great deal of fun at himself as he described his own battles with manic depression and the enormous impact it has had on his life and career in the music industry and more recently in television and publishing. He was compassionate, informative, honest and very funny; humanising what can be distressing for the sufferer and those around them and made it clear to the pupils that seeking help is the best way forward. Downside School was recently voted “Best for Wellbeing” by The Week so Jeremy’s talk was particularly topical and much enjoyed by us all.
