Jigsaw recently announced that from Monday next July 11th, young people aged 15-25 from the region will once again be able to access free and confidential mental health support at Jigsaw Roscommon.
Parents, Guardians and adults working with young people will also be able to contact Jigsaw Roscommon to discuss concerns they may have about a young person, and to get information about the most appropriate support available.
Jigsaw Roscommon recently welcomed Noel Comer on board as their Senior Clinical Support Worker. Noel, will be permanently based at the Jigsaw Roscommon office in the Primary Care Centre, Golf Links Road, Roscommon Town. Originally from Ballyhaunis in County Mayo, Noel is an experienced mental health social worker who will be dedicated to supporting the mental health of young people in Roscommon. Noel worked for a number of years with young people at Boston Children’s Hospital in the US. Noel and his family now live locally in Roscommon Town, where he’s been busy preparing to re-open the service.
These preparations involve meeting with members of the community involved in youth mental health work, and with the young people on our Jigsaw Roscommon Youth Advisory Panel – All towards ensuring the service is ready to provide sustainable, safe and quality mental health supports for young people from Monday 11th July.
Jigsaw also took the opportunity of the announcement to thank the public for their patience and support since the temporary closure of the service in February. “We’ve been working closely with all of our partners in the HSE, local community agencies and the young people on our Youth Advisory Panel, to find a sustainable way of delivering the Jigsaw Service in Roscommon. Once more we thank you for your patience and continued support as we build our capacity to increase service provision and support for youth mental health across the county of Roscommon.”
