BIOGRAPHY

Jon Salmon has created an award-winning production studio, a pioneer of live video streaming from some of the largest music festivals and is now the co-founder of branded entertainment agency Byte Entertainment.


Jon lost his father to suicide as a teenager and soon after starting his first job in 1999 at the internet company AOL he was sectioned and admitted to hospital suffering stress and depression. Unlike his Dad, Jon was able to get the right help including support from his employer and returned to a new job the following year.


However, Jon decided not to tell anyone for nearly 20 years that he had suffered with his mental health due to the stigma.


It was after the suicide of a close friend due to postnatal depression in 2016 that Jon decided he had to speak out.

Jon couldn’t have picked a more public platform to do so when he was asked to speak alongside the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry at the launch of the Heads Together mental health campaign – not even his family or friends knew he was going to do this!


Jon now continues to speak openly about the importance of better mental health awareness and how talking can not only reduce the stigma but save lives.
