Dublin South West

We are pleased to announce that Jigsaw Dublin Southwest will reopen for new referrals on Tuesday, 17 August.

In June, due to an exceptional operational challenge as a result of a number of staff transitions, Jigsaw Dublin Southwest had to temporarily suspend accepting referrals until staffing levels were adequately restored.

We now have new staff in post and look forward to taking your referrals again.

About us

While Jigsaw is a mental health service, it is also specifically an early intervention service for young people at a primary care level. This means that Jigsaw helps young people going through mild to moderate mental health difficulties. We aim to offer support at difficult periods of their lives before these issues become more serious and in need of longer, more intensive health supports.

Direct support for young people

Getting support early on can help strengthen a young person’s resilience for the future, teaching them positive ways to cope with difficulties. This can prevent problems before they snowball into something less manageable. It can prevent some young people from developing long-term and serious mental health problems later in life.

Working with young people

At Jigsaw, we believe it’s vital to make sure that young people’s voices are heard. Our Youth Advisory Panel (YAP) represents us and takes part in decision-making at every level.

Working with the community

As well as directly helping young people in tough times, we want to work towards a community that is supportive of mental health and wellbeing. Presentations and workshops in schools, workplaces and community groups aim to open up a discussion on mental health and raise people’s awareness of the support that Jigsaw Dublin South West can offer.

Tell us about your experience

At Jigsaw, we care passionately about what we do and strive to give young people the best possible support with their mental health. If you are happy, or unhappy, with our service in any way, you can provide feedback by completing our online feedback form.

In my free time, I love climbing as a way to exercise, both indoors and outdoors. This is also great for staying in the moment and getting out of my thoughts.

Study and work

My previous work was in supporting children and their families. But I always knew I wanted to work in the area of mental health.

I started as a Clinician at Jigsaw in February 2019. In October 2020, I became a Senior Clinician in Dublin South West. I am most interested in the areas of CBT, compassion focused work and narrative work.

Senior Jigsaw Clinician and Social Worker

I have been working and volunteering with young people since leaving school. This included volunteering for the ISPCC in Dublin and volunteering for a child and youth organisation in Nepal. I also worked in child and family social work around Ireland and now at Jigsaw Dublin South-West.

I completed the Bachelor in Social Studies & Social Work in Trinity College Dublin. I really love my job and feel very lucky to have worked with so many amazing young people on my journey so far!

Donna Doyle

Service Manager

I began my Jigsaw journey in July 2019 when I was appointed Service Manager for Jigsaw Dublin South West. I am primarily responsible for the operational implementation of the service. Alongside the Clinical Manager, I ensure it is in compliance with service-related policies and procedures. There is a fantastic team I manage here who are all passionate and dedicated to young people's mental health. I thoroughly enjoy working with and for young people in supporting mental health services. I am also very excited to be part of the Youth Mental Health Forum in Ireland. 

I discovered a passion for volunteering with young people and horses in the Fettercairn Youth Horse Project. A Youth Outreach Worker role came up within the project and I successfully applied for it. From that point, going to work no longer felt like a ‘job’ but a real passion.  I was so excited to be helping young people realise the opportunities available to them.

While there, I obtained an educational grant for BA Training and Education and graduated from NUI Galway in 2014. I spent 12 years working in Youth and Community Development and progressed on to managing community facilities in West Tallaght. I also spent a period as a social care worker in a residential home for young people with Daffodil Care Services.

I began with the Jigsaw Dublin South West team in March 2020. Working with the young people and communities of Dublin South West, I am keen to help educate and empower people to speak confidently about mental health. In doing so, we hope to dispel some of the common misconceptions about mental health.

My volunteering began as a teenager in Tallaght with the St. Aengus’s week annual Knockadoon Residential Camp in Cork. Here I discovered a love of working with young people. I lived in Belfast and Boston to further my interest volunteering with young people and completed a Springboard (or Fás, at the time) course .

I then studied Youth and Community Work in the Liberties, Dublin. From there, I spent many years working as a Youth Worker with the traveller community. At 27,  I completed a social care degree in D.I.T. and then worked for years in crisis intervention. Here really began my interest and passion for promoting and supporting young people’s mental health.

I had no plans for moving to Ireland as I had an offer to study elsewhere. But at the last minute, life had other ideas. Here I am five years later and considering Irish citizenship. Sometimes things work out for the best, in a way we least expect.
