We need to raise €4 million by 2025 to make sure that our children will have the services they need to support them as they grow.
We can’t predict the future, but we can ensure we are prepared for it...
What does the future look like? The world moves on so quickly, that an 8yr old in primary school now, will face very different challenges than those their teenage brothers and sisters are facing today.
Your donation will fund our vital ongoing research into the mental health needs and experiences of young people in Ireland. Meaning we can prepare for whatever the future brings, and be ready and equipped to face those challenges alongside and shoulder to shoulder with our young people.
Your donation will help us build the future our children deserve...
Jigsaw’s One Good School™ is our new approach to supporting mental health and wellbeing in post primary schools. When you donate to futureproof™ our services, you will be helping us to fund our ambition to deliver this programme to post primary schools right across Ireland.
Since 2008, over 31,500 young people have had one to one support from a mental health professional, in a Jigsaw service in their community...
But not every young person can reach a Jigsaw face-to-face service. Your donation will fund the ongoing development and provision of JigsawOnline.ie accessible 24/7 and making sure that young people wherever they may be and however hard they may find it to seek help have access to quality, evidence based mental health support online. JigsawOnline.ie also offers tools and support for parents and those working with young people. Your donation will help us to futureproof™ our communities, better equipping every one of us to support the mental health of our young people.
We need your help to embed Jigsaw’s pro-active, early intervention approach in every town and village in Ireland. This is a huge task, but it simply must be done. Ireland’s young people deserve no less and we won’t rest until it is done.
The carefree child of today could be the anxious teenager of tomorrow...
We need to futureproof™ our services, to make sure that those teenagers, our children, will have access to the support they deserve.
We must ensure they have the tools to thrive as happy, successful adults.
We know that the Jigsaw approach works. We act early, we create a turning point for the young people we support, helping them to develop the tools to prevent a tough time spiralling into future problems and eventually a tough life.
Our services across Ireland are finding ways to reach more and more young people every day, we have just announced new Jigsaw services to open soon in Tipperary and Wexford.
But all of this is still not enough. We need to do so much more.
Almost one in three young people have reported feelings of depression and anxiety. 51% of 17 to 25 yr olds have considered the idea of suicide. There are so many more young people across Ireland, who urgently need our support. Demand for our services grew by 35% in 2018 and it continues to grow...
So we are asking you now, to help us.
Will you make a donation to futureproof™ our vital mental health services for young people?
For our young people?
For our future?
As the saying goes, ‘it takes a village to raise a child’, and we cannot do this without you.
