Lidl’s One Good Club is an initiative in partnership with the LGFA and Jigsaw which offers selected GAA clubs the opportunity to support all members to engage in activities that can promote better mental health and well-being. The programme is also designed to provide opportunities to engage with positive messaging and support mechanisms for young people in the community.
But who are Jigsaw?
Jigsaw is a Youth Mental Health Service. It is also an early intervention service for young people at a primary care level.
Mental health can affect every aspect of a young person’s life and Jigsaw believe every young person must have the support that’s right for them, whatever they are going through.
They offer a listening ear and give expert advice and support to young people aged 12 – 25 years old. They also give families, teachers, anyone who supports young people ways to cope , and empower them with skills to be there for their young people.
Jigsaw’s vision statement is to ensure that every young person’s mental health is valued and supported.
Jigsaw achieve this vision by offering
– face to face support, as well as sessions by videolink and telephone.
– a wide range of free, expert information and resources, all available on their website.
– Live Chat, a new way to get support for young people, connecting 1:1 with their trained staff.
– Group Chats, live online discussions on mental health themes, moderated by a Jigsaw clinician. Each week has a different theme.
– Ask Jigsaw, a service which offers a young person a way to anonymously ask any mental health question or query they may have and have it answered by a Jigsaw Clinician.
Jigsaw services are based in communities across Ireland and we are lucky to have a service close by.
