About us

Jigsaw Limerick is a free, non-judgemental and confidential mental health support service for young people aged 12 – 25 living, working or studying Limerick City and County. 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 Limerick 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.

Direct support for young people

Jigsaw Limerick 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 guidance. We also provide information and advice to anyone who is worried about a friend or young person in their 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) represent us and take part in decision making at every level.

Working with the community

As well as directly helping young people in tough times, we work towards a community that is supportive of mental health and wellbeing. Presentations and talks in schools, workplaces and community groups open up discussions on mental health, and raise people’s awareness of the support that Jigsaw Limerick 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, let us know by completing our online feedback form.

Aisling Murray

Service Administrator

I recently moved back home to Limerick having lived in Cork for the last two years.

Study and work

In college, I studied Early Childhood Care and Education and loved it! Once I graduated, I decided to travel for a few years while I had the chance. Having worked in administration for quite a few years, I was delighted to see an opportunity arise to work with an incredible organization like Jigsaw.

I have always admired the work they do and couldn’t be happier to be a part of the team. I am now settling into my new role as Service Administrator with Jigsaw Limerick.
