Has something been bothering you recently? Got a mental health query or concern? 

Ask here and have your queries answered by Jigsaw clinicians. These are trained mental health professionals who have lots of experience supporting young people and their families, with their mental health. 

How does it work? 

  • Submit your query or question anonymously through the fields below
  • A Jigsaw clinician will read through all of the queries that are submitted each week
  • Check ‘Ask Jigsaw Q&A‘ for all published questions and answers . *Please note, we might change or remove some details to ensure anonymity 
  • As the questions are anonymous, we won’t be able to provide responses directly to each individual.

Due to the number of questions, we can’t guarantee that we will be able to answer each one, but we’ll try! 

We hope ‘Ask Jigsaw’ can provide helpful advice and guidance. However, it cannot provide direct therapeutic support, like talking to someone face to face.

If you are looking for an urgent response please visit ‘in crisis‘.
