Stephen’s journey with us began when he was 15. His father passed away and he experienced feelings of anxiety and depression.
He had no language for what he was going through, but Stephen started seeing Marie, a Jigsaw clinician. She helped him to see the big picture and gave him strategies to deal with his anxiety. By helping him with his past, he was ready for what lay ahead. Steven’s recovery had begun.
How we're making a difference
Free therapy sessions were offered to young people who needed to talk.
Visits to jigsaw.ie by people looking for information and support for their mental health.
Parents, teachers, and young people learned about mental health in our workshops.
Marie started to help me look at that grief that I'd been avoiding for so long. In those sessions with Marie, they started to give me a language and a vocabulary to not only talk about it, but to process it myself.
