Did you know that one in four of Irish people will experience a mental health problem this year? And that 75 per cent of mental health difficulties emerge before the age of 25?
Talking about mental health as a young adult can be difficult, but it’s an issue that is crying out for our attention. We at Headstrong need your help to answer that call.
Headstrong, is a non-profit organisation supporting young people’s mental health in Ireland. We have Jigsaw projects that offer free, brief and youth-friendly mental health support to young people aged 12-25 and unite communities to listen to and support young people around Ireland. We need you and your school to become a Headstrong Hero and help us with our mission in changing how Ireland thinks about youth mental health.
Get involved by organising a fundraising or awareness event, here’s some inspiration to get you started! Hold a superhero themed sports day, a non-uniform day, student V’s teacher event or complete a mental health themed project as part of your Transition Year YSI project.
