Who we are.

We are Jigsaw, The National Centre for Youth Mental Health. There to ensure that no young person feels alone, isolated and disconnected from others around them. We provide vital supports to young people with their mental health by working closely with communities across Ireland.

Jigsaw has helped me in ways I didn’t know were possible. I feel like a new stronger person

Our ambition is an Ireland where young people are connected to their community and have the resilience to face challenges to their mental health.

I thought Jigsaw was amazing. There should be more out there for teens. They helped me get my life back, and I know that more teens need that kind of support.

Our year.

In 2016 we provided our vital mental health support to even more young people through our Jigsaw Services, and gave thousands of people in communities across Ireland the knowledge and understanding they need to support young people with their mental health. We couldn’t have done any of this without some truly amazing people, including our supporters, volunteers, and staff. So we’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone who has helped us to make a real difference to young people’s mental health over the past year.

Jigsaw is kick ass! But seriously, Jigsaw is really good and very helpful. For me, it made it a lot easier to cope with everything I had going on.
