What is Jigsaw?

Our vision is an Ireland where every young person’s mental health is valued and supported.

At Jigsaw we provide a range of free mental health supports for young people, funded by the HSE, currently situated in 13 communities across Ireland, and we continue to expand.

We know that by acting early we can prevent moderate difficulties from growing into a crisis.

Early intervention

We know that by acting early we can prevent moderate difficulties from growing into a crisis.

Jigsaw is an early intervention service. We work with young people (age 12-25) when problems start to develop in an effort to prevent these problems from having a greater effect on the young person’s wellbeing and everyday life.

Young people most often attend Jigsaw for support with things like managing low mood or managing anxiety. However, many young people share with us other difficulties or challenges that they are facing.

Jigsaw believes that no problem is too small to share. If something is playing on a young person’s mind we encourage them to talk about it and inform themselves.

We know that acting early to support a young person, and the community around them, to respond to their mental health needs, leads to better outcomes. And that many can be prevented from experiencing more serious mental health difficulties at a later point in their lives.
