We are supporters, professionals, and volunteers who together are committed to improving young people’s mental health. We want to develop supportive communities in which young people are able to talk about their mental health safe in the knowledge that they will be heard and get the support they need.
We work with communities to start conversations, encourage understanding and increase knowledge about youth mental health. We engage with policy makers and politicians to inform their decisions and advocate for better mental health supports for young people.
Our Jigsaw services are a free mental health support for young people aged 12-25 situated in the heart of local communities across Ireland.
They provide a range of supports, including therapeutic work with young people and their parents, as well as a comprehensive programme of education and training designed to increase the mental health literacy of young people, parents, school teachers, health and social care professionals, and volunteers.
Jigsaw’s 2018-2020 strategy builds on our successes of the past 13 years and lessons learnt.
