Headstrong’s Jigsaw Programme is an innovative approach to weaving together supports and services in local communities to enhance the mental health and well-being of young people. It is designed to promote services that are more accessible, youth-friendly, integrated and engaging for young people. The Jigsaw Model – which is currently active in Co Galway and Ballymun - has been developed on the basis of extensive research and consultation with young people, service providers, families and communities throughout Ireland and internationally. Young people and communities have been directly involved in the planning, design and development of the model, which will differ in each community according to need. The report is supported by QUINN-healthcare which is also sponsoring the development of other new resources by Headstrong. These resources focus on mental health and drug and alcohol issues for young people, parents and those working with young people.
