An Accidental Journey from Jake Mills
Jake Mills will discuss his accidental journey that has taken him from a depressed and suicidal comedian to Chief Executive of national mental health charity, Chasing the Stigma and the founder of the Hub of Hope, a vital resource being used by mental health trusts and organisations throughout the UK. Discussing his lived experience, Jake will highlight the power of using times of adversity as building blocks for positive change.
Who should attend?
This session may appeal to non-profit and public sector professionals who are interested in diversity and inclusion with a focus on mental health & wellbeing in the workplace.
Speaker: Jake Mills, award-winning stand-up comedian, mental health campaigner and CEO.
Jake founded and runs the multi-award winning national mental health charity, Chasing the Stigma, which he established following his own battle with depression and suicide attempt in 2013.
From a place of despair and personal turmoil, Jake created the Hub of Hope, a ground-breaking mental health database that has since become the UK’s biggest and most comprehensive mental health signposting tool, revolutionising mental health pathways in the UK.
Described as the ‘Dalai Lama of Mental Health’, by Davina McCall in 2017, after going public about his mental health struggles and recovery, Jake has continued to advocate for those with lived experience of mental health issues, while also highlighting the importance of acknowledging that we all have mental health to look after. Jake was appointed CEO of Chasing the Stigma in February 2018 and has driven the charity forward to become one of the fastest rising and well-respected mental health charities in the UK, with the Hub of Hope being recognised at the BIMA, Third Sector Care and Charity Times awards - all within Jake’s first year in post.
In 2018, Jake developed the Ambassador of Hope mental health training programme, a fully accredited and accessible training programme, making it easier for organisations to equip all members of staff with the knowledge to talk about mental health confidently within the workplace. The training has since been rolled out to thousands of participants across a variety of sectors, working with organisations such as the Premier League and Government offices.
Jake is a life-long and long-suffering Everton FC supporter and a self-confessed Bruce Springsteen fanatic. Most importantly though, he is a husband to Rachael and a dad to Teddy and Nancy.
