  • Where do the funds go?

    Jigsaw offer expert mental health advice and support, online and in person, to young people across Ireland, aged 12 – 25 years old. Our vision is for an Ireland where every young person’s mental health is valued and supported.

    By supporting Jigsaw, we will be able to help more young people like Ricky:

    “It was like someone took my hand and put away all the shadows. I was able to leave Jigsaw with my head held high and walk out confident, knowing that I had the skills I needed to deal with whatever came up.”

    And we can continue to be there as young people like Ricky face challenges to their mental health during the pandemic and beyond.
