Who We Are
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.
