Who we are

Jigsaw Galway is part of a national network of Jigsaw Services supported by Jigsaw, the National Centre for Youth Mental Health, all aiming to provide tailored community-based help for young people’s mental health needs. Jigsaw’s aim is to support young people in Galway who are struggling, to ensure they get the support they need, when and where they need it.

What we do

Jigsaw Galway provide a free, confidential and non- judgemental one to one support service for the mental health and well-being of young people aged 15 – 25 in Galway city and county. We provide guidance and support for young people who are going through a difficult or distressing time. We try to make our service as accessible as possible, therefore to make an appointment you can call, text, ring or fill in a form from our website. Young people can self-refer or if under the age of 18 a parent or guardian can contact us for an appointment on their behalf. Here are all the contact details you may need:

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 Galway can offer.

How we do it

Our service in Galway city 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.

At Jigsaw, we believe it’s vital to make sure that young people’s voices are heard. Our Youth Advisory Panel (YAP) are a group of passionate volunteers (16-25 years) who represent us and take part in decision making at every level.
