The impact

We are Jigsaw, the National Centre for Youth Mental Health and we
want you to start your journey with us at Revolution x Jigsaw.

Register
At Jigsaw we act early.

We create a turning point for the young people we support, helping them to develop the tools to prevent a tough time spiralling
into future problems and eventually a tough life.  We know our approach works. Since 2008 over 32,000 young people have had one to one support from a mental health professional in a Jigsaw service in their community.

But it is simply not enough. We need to do so much more. There are so many more young people across Ireland, who urgently need our support. This number is growing and it will continue to grow into the future.

And what does the future look like? The world moves on so quickly, that an 8yr old in primary school now, will face very different challenges than those their teenage brothers and sisters are facing today.

We can’t predict the future, but this Revolution can ensure we are prepared for it. We are asking you now, to join us, to get on your bike and help us futureproof our vital mental health services for young people.

Will you take on this Revolution to build the future our children deserve?

The carefree child of today could be the anxious teenager of tomorrow. Join the Revolution now. For our young people. For our future.

How your Revolution will futureproof our vital services for young people across Ireland:

1. Growing JigsawOnline.ie

We have just launched www.JigsawOnline.ie, which is our new e-mental
health support service, dedicated to providing free information on all
aspects of youth mental health and accessible nationally 24/7. But we
need to develop JigsawOnline.ie so we can offer direct one-to-one
support online – making sure we can reach young people wherever
they may be and however hard they may find it to seek help. This is a
huge task, but it simply must be done.

2. Schools

Revolution ​will support the continued development of Jigsaw’s One Good School™ ​
initiative – a comprehensive initiative which will be rolled out/implemented in
post-primary schools across the country starting this academic year 2019/2020.
This initiative supports the mental health and wellbeing of young people ​and
those around them by developing a shared responsibility for mental health
across the whole school community.Jigsaw’s One Good School
initiative supports schools with a multi-component and whole-school
approach to mental health and wellbeing through a broad range
of evidence-informed activities for the whole-school community –
including teachers,parents and students.

3. Research

It means we can continue our vital research on the lived realities of
our young people and develop the most appropriate responses to
support them as best we can.

With your help, and that of thousands of other kind and caring people right
across Ireland, we can and will achieve our vision of a future in Ireland
where every young person’s mental health is valued and supported.
With your support, we work towards this vision in three ways;

1. We Influence Change

We engage with policy makers and politicians to
inform their decisions and advocate for better
mental health supports for young people.

2. We Strengthen Communities

We also work with communities to start conversa-
tions, encourage understanding and increase
knowledge about youth mental health.

3. We Provide Services

We provide mental health information and one to
one support for young people aged 12-25 years
old, and for those who care about youth mental
health. You can find and contact your nearest
service by visiting jigsaw.ie/help
