Further info

How can Jigsaw Donegal help? if I’m a young person…

Jigsaw offers a one-to-one support service for young people aged between 15 and 25. We can assess your mental health and help you to understand what is going on for you. We will work with you to set goals around what you would like to be different in your life. Then we will support you to reach those goals, through talking things out, problem solving, learning new skills and / or hooking you up with other services that might be able to help (e.g. education & training; youth services etc). Jigsaw helps young people through the current hurdles, learning skills along the way that will help them overcome the next challenge that comes their way. Jigsaw is a free and confidential service that is built on really listening to you and your experience and working with you to make things better.

Call or email the service for an appointment.

Telephone: 074 97 26920 Email: donegal@jigsaw.ie

If I am worried about someone…

We can advise you on the best service for the young person based on the information you provide. As a parent we can inform you of how to support a young person yourself or how to help them access Jigsaw or other supports that they might need.
