After being diagnosed with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and anxiety at an early age, he knows what it's like struggling with uncertainty and trauma.
He is known for his statement, "Mental illness is as real as a broken bone".
Jeremy's OCD was severe. He felt so incredibly alone and had no idea where to turn. Everything changed when he reached out for professional help and followed the framework in which he was recommended.
In the late 2000s he was selected to represent Canada during Mental Illness Awareness Week due to his ongoing effort in encouraging those suffering with mental health issues to reach out for professional help.
Jeremy shares his story of reaching out for professional help in his live presentations and how it profoundly and positively impacted his life.
Even though Jeremy's struggle with OCD and overwhelming anxiety is behind him, he now is on a journey to help those suffering with more 'everyday' type issues that we take for granted and sometimes are not even aware of.
Things like, racing thoughts, taking things personally, always being caught up dwelling on bad things in the past or fearing the future, and even how to avoid needless arguments are the types of issues Jeremy helps thousands with nowadays.
His work has reached over 9 million people and he has a growing audience of almost 100 000 subscribers on his YouTube channel.
