We are proud to partner with Jigsaw – The National Centre for Youth Mental Health. Through this partnership, we have pledged to raise €1 million and grow national awareness for youth mental health.
The Covid19 pandemic has impacted and affected all our lives. The uncertainty and isolation is leaving many young people without the core things they need and value for their mental wellbeing. A hug, chats, walks in the park. A friend.
While this crisis is impacting young people in so many ways, it also creates many new challenges for parents, family members, friends, teachers, coaches and colleagues. The loss of usual routines, trying to support young people, juggling many roles and spending long periods of time with those you live with. We all need be there to support young people through these difficult times, but we also need to ensure we look after our own mental health, because we cannot support others if we are not support yourselves.
Lidl are supporting Jigsaw, and Jigsaw support us all to find ways to support our mental health, so we can be there to support our young people. Visit www.JigsawOnline.ie to explore the range of services and supports available for young people, their parents, family members, friends, teachers, coaches and colleagues. Their services range from phone support (1800 JIGSAW), video call support, email support, group chats, online supportive content, webinars, plus, much, much more.
Not only are we aiming to raise funds to help Jigsaw, but we are also aiming to raise national awareness of youth mental health by encouraging all of our customers and colleagues to be One Good Adult to a young person in their lives.
