We research and evaluate

At Jigsaw, we know that mental health difficulties peak during teenage and early adult years. We also know that young people who experience mental health difficulties are unlikely to look for help. 

For these reasons, we are committed to conducting research and evaluation to:

  • understand Irish young people’s mental health needs
  • make sure that the services we and others provide are of a high quality and work for young people 
  • improve and be better at how we support young people with their mental health

Here you'll find out more about the research that we do and how it influences our work.
