Our vision, mission and objectives

We recently launched our new strategy ‘Together’ 2022 – 2025, setting out our plan for the next four years.

Our vision is for an Ireland where every young person’s mental health is valued and supported.

 Our new strategy has two main goals:

  1. Achieve better mental health outcomes for young people through … services, mental health promotion, public awareness, and advocacy.
  2. Build a high-performing organisation fit for the future through … people, technology, funding, evidence.

Together, we will achieve better mental health outcomes for young people (ages 12 - 25) by delivering therapeutic services, promoting youth mental health and mobilising community societal change, while ensuring our organisation evolves to support all aspects of our work. 

Jigsaw in a changing world

Since 2006, through an integrated approach, focused on improving mental health outcomes for young people. Jigsaw has remained steadfast in our commitment to help create an Ireland where young people are connected to their community, have easy-to-access support and services to face challenges to their mental health.

While we are proud of what we have achieved in this regard to date, we are fully aware there is so much more to be done.

In developing Together, Jigsaw’s Organisational Strategy 2022-2025, we were keenly aware of key drivers of change – the defining role the Covid-19 pandemic has played, and will continue to play, in all our lives; the scale and impact of climate change on our lives and the lives of those to come; the ever increasing role of digital technologies across societies; changes to patterns of consumption; the growing global debate on issues of social justice, race and diversity and more.

Joseph Duffy
CEO of Jigsaw
We are ambitious and bold about changing the current paradigm in approaches to mental health. We aim to continue to inspire change, and to be pioneering, disruptive, brave and determined in creating positive change across Ireland.

Our new strategy represents fresh thinking. It acknowledges that new ways of working are feasible and that digital interventions must be central to all future thinking. It emphasises the true value in our approach at primary care level – in session rooms, in classrooms, in lecture halls, on sports grounds, workplaces, homes and more – these settings, both physical and digital, remain central to our strategic thinking.

Collectively, our response to Covid-19 has shown that we are capable of making widespread and significant changes in a short space of time. As a nation, and an organisation, we must maintain this spirit of flexibility, agility and openness to doing things differently. If we do, and we continue to listen, to work tirelessly and together, we believe we can achieve our vision of an Ireland that values and supports every young person’s mental health.

Together we can do this!
