Covid-19 response 

Jigsaw launched a freephone number as part our response to Covid-19. The freephone provides free mental health support and advice to young people aged 12 to 25 years old, and parents or concerned adults who live in the Republic of Ireland.

You can also get in touch with Jigsaw clinicians by text message or email and ask for a return support call at this time.
