Jigsaw data: Live Infographics

Following on from RTE rugby pundit Brent Pope’s recent piece for Silicon Republic on why research into mental health is vital, we thought we’d share our recently refreshed Jigsaw infographics showing the impact of our work supporting Irish young people’s mental health.

Jigsaw see research and evaluation as essential to what we do in understanding and supporting young people’s mental health needs. Our research and evaluation makes sure that the services that we provide work for our young people, and help us to improve how we support them with their mental health. We also think it’s important for us to be as open and honest as possible about our work and the value that it brings.

We evaluate and share our key findings online through our Jigsaw infographics, which displays up-to-date information about Jigsaw Services. We also share and discuss our research through journal articles, conference presentations, reports, community talks, blogs and the media.

The latest stats and information on our work

By taking a look at our Jigsaw Infographics you can quickly and easily see stats, including:

  • Almost 25% of young people contact Jigsaw themselves for support, with 35.4% getting in touch through a parent and 10.12% through a GP.
  • 57% of the young people we see are female and 43% male.
  • Over 70% of young people would recommend Jigsaw to a friend.
  • Over 45,000 people have taken part in our mental health training and workshops that enourage people to talk about the mental health of young people and provide practical ways to support them.

There are lots more stats for you to look at that show the impact of our work. Feel free to take a look at our Jigsaw infographics and learn more.
