The Journey so far

Who Can be OneGoodAdult?

A mother. Uncle. Big sister. Coach. Teacher. Friend. Anyone. But who it definitely can be is, YOU.

What can I do?


Listening to young people is a critical part of being OneGoodAdult; really giving them time and attention to open up. For more information download your Lidl Book of Listening here to learn ways to further support a young person close to you.


  • Listen
  • Look for windows of opportunity
  • Ask direct questions
  • Comment on what you see
  • Be aware of body language
  • Ask how you can be of help
  • Encourage help seeking
  • Overreact
  • Avoid the issue
  • Dismiss a young person's concerns
  • Talk just about problems
  • Rush to solve the problem
  • Tell a young person that they're wrong to feel a certain way
  • Use cliches

Youth Mental Health..

Mental health is:

  • about how we feel
  • about how we relate to ourselves and to other people
  • about having a positive mental outlook – not just the absence of mental illness
  • manageable in a similar way to how we manage our physical health

It’s never too early to start looking after your mental health; good mental health can be nurtured from childhood onwards.

We can all be that…
One Good Adult

75% of all mental health difficulties emerge between the ages of 15 and 25 years.
Young people with One Good Adult in their lives show:

  • Increased self esteem
  • More success in school life
  • Better mental health
  • An increased likelihood to seek help
  • Less risk taking behaviours

One Good Adult

With the OneGoodAdult campaign we want to shine a light on the role friends, family, teachers, coaches, and colleagues can play when it comes to supporting young people with mental health.

Simply someone who is there, willing to listen without judgement when a young person needs to talk.

What can i look out for?

When keeping an eye out for signs a young person may be struggling remember - -what is typical for one young person is not the same as for another and that you are looking for signs of changes in their usual behaviour or demeanour. Signs may include:

  • Reduced attention span
  • Anxiety
  • Reduction in academic performance
  • Behaviour problems
  • Excessive tiredness
  • Irritability
  • Sadness
  • Loss of interest or pleasure
  • Withdrawal
  • Sudden changes in behaviour mood or appearance

Driving our partnership through local fundraising, regional initiatives and participation
Driving our partnership through local fundraising, regional initiatives and participation, our employees have co-ordinated multiple local and national fundraisers, including Superhero Saturday, Lidl’s Got Talent, Jump for Jigsaw (an exciting skydive), The Bakery (a pop-up café that moved around four locations in Ireland offering a space for people to talk and enjoy a break from life), and The Pumpkin Patch (a family fun event in aid of Jigsaw at Halloween). This collaborative approach has already brought in more than €500,000 for Jigsaw to date while also creating stronger awareness for the organisation and its OneGoodAdult campaign.

We completed OneGoodManager training with leadership in Lidl. This training was delivered in conjunction with Jigsaw and based on OneGoodAdult research. Through this training we were able to shine a light on the importance of mental health and supporting one another’s mental health with our colleagues at work


Jigsaw passionately believe that with your help we can bring about an Ireland where every young person’s mental health is valued and supported.

Through their 13 services in communities across Ireland they provide early intervention mental health supports to young people aged 12-25. Their services are designed in consultation with young people to be a welcoming place young people can visit for free information and support from trained mental health professionals. If a young person wants support, Jigsaw service teams are there to listen, without making judgements, and to provide supportive guidance. They also provide information and advice to anyone who is worried about a friend or young person in their life.

Jigsaw also provide a range of specialist education and training programmes in schools, workplaces and community groups which aim to encourage understanding and increase knowledge about youth mental health and the support their services can offer.
