About us

Jigsaw Kerry is a free, non-judgemental and confidential mental health support service for young people aged 12 – 25 living, working or studying in Co Kerry. We provide guidance and support for young people who are going through a difficult or distressing time. We also provide advice and guidance for anyone who is concerned about a young person in their life.

Jigsaw Kerry is part of a national network of Jigsaw Services supported by Jigsaw, the National Centre for Youth Mental Health. Jigsaw Services aim to provide tailored community-based help for young people’s mental health needs.

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 well being. Presentations and talks 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 Kerry can offer.

Direct support for young people

Our service in Tralee, Co Kerry provides a welcoming space for young people to get information or have a chat with a support worker. If a young person wants support, our staff are there to listen, without making judgements, and to provide supportive guidance. We also provide information and advice to anyone who is worried about a friend or young person in their life.

Our service is also offered in Killarney, Cahirsiveen, Listowel, Dingle. Call us for more information on availability for these locations.

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

Mary Scott

Jigsaw Clinician

My role is working with young people providing one-to-one support. I journey with the young person to help identify their strengths, talk through their challenges, and explore ways forward.

Study and work: I originally studied Law and received a Degree in Legal and Business Studies in WIT. I went on to complete Law exams which allowed me entry to Blackhall Law Society. However, around this time I started undertaking volunteer work and I found it very fulfilling. I subsequently went a different route and went on to complete a Higher Diploma in Social Policy and a Masters in Social Work in UCC. I worked in Legal Aid and volunteered with the Simon Community and in an Asylum Seekers Drop-in Centre. I worked part-time in both Brothers of Charity and Children in Care at the same time. I then worked in CAMHS Limerick for over two years. I really enjoyed it and I had the privilege of working with young people and their families.
