Jigsaw is thrilled to have won the Large Not-For-Profit category at this year’s Published Accounts Awards are the Shelbourne Hotel, Dublin.
Jigsaw was one of 30 organisations to receive 2022’s European Citizen’s Prize in Brussels this week.
The One Good School™ Assembly saw over 350 participants from 100 post-primary schools take part in a celebration to mark the half-way point of a two-year mental health and wellbeing programme running in 146 post primary schools in 12 counties across the Republic of Ireland.
On Monday, 17 October 2022, Jigsaw’s Youth Advocates and management team were joined by Minister for Health, Stephen Donnelly to officially open its new service in Wicklow.
Thousands more young people are seeking mental health support in the wake of Covid and the cost-of-living crisis.
July is Disability Pride month. It’s an important time to celebrate individuality and to stress the importance of making our society more inclusive and accessible.
We asked our Youth Advocates the question, “What does Disability Pride mean to you?”
Here are their answers:
An Taoiseach Micheál Martin met with Mental Health Reform and Jigsaw in Cork on Saturday, 9th July.
As part of the visit, An Taoiseach heard about the work of Mental Health Reform and Jigsaw’s plans for improved youth mental health services in Cork.
Mary Clare Douglas is our Clinical Online Services Manager and we recently caught up with her to talk about Jigsaw’s online services and the difference they are making for young people.
The award specifically recognises the Jigsaw team’s agile response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
In a short space of time, we were able to continue to offer direct support to young people through a range of online services.
This prize is a reflection of the genuine commitment of all our staff. Their tireless work during the pandemic and beyond continues to support Ireland’s young people, and the communities where they live, work, learn and play. We want to thank each and every one of you.
Dr. Joseph Duffy, CEO said:
This is a personal story written for us by one of our young volunteers.
My name is Savannah. I am a Youth Advocate with Jigsaw Dublin City North.
Pride means that I am able to live my life with dignity, integrity, courage, joy, love and in community with others without fear of being ridiculed, shamed or discriminated against.
I feel so passionately about the importance of Pride, not only for myself, my fellow LGBTQIA+ community, but people all over Ireland.
Pride should be a celebrated and encouraged event nationwide and this is why I am so excited to be walking in Pride on the 25 June 2022 for the first time ever with Jigsaw.
