Jigsaw Chief Executive Officer Joseph Duffy commented;

 “Without the commitment of our supporters in the community, we simply cannot support all our young people that deserve our help. In order to drive the change we see as essential in youth mental health, we see this innovative schools programme as one that can inform, support, educate and empower a wide section of our educators, enabling a better understanding of our collective responsibility in supporting young people’s mental health. Fundraising events like these enable us to put these plans into action.”
