Headstrong is The National Centre for Youth Mental Health and they are organising a Croke Park Abseil on Saturday 16th April 2016.



At Headstrong, they aim to connect young people to their communities to get the resilience to face challenges towards their mental health. Through their Jigsaw programme they provide free and confidential support for people aged 12-25  and are working to change how Ireland thinks about young people’s mental health. Jigsaw is currently in 10 communities around Ireland.

2016 marks Headstrong’s 10th year of making a difference to the mental health of young people across the country and also this is the second year of the Headstrong Hero Abseil.
