Jigsaw is delighted to announce the latest event in our Jigsaw Exchange series on Wednesday, September 29th from 9.30-12.30pm.

Supported by the YOULEAD research programme and featuring Prof. Debra Rickwood, Chief Scientific Advisor in headspace Australia, this virtual conference will deep dive into the latest mental health research, developments and discourse from youth mental health services and poses the question “Delivering Mental Health Supports to Young People – What Have we Learned and Where are we Going?”.


This event will focus specifically on key learnings from Jigsaw’s research and evaluation over the last 15 years. We hope to present compelling evidence, challenge assumptions, air the voices of young people, and progress the conversation around youth mental health service delivery, thus facilitating the translation of evidence into policy and practice.


With keynote speakers, lightening sessions, opportunities for discussion, debate and network, this virtual conference will be of interest to Jigsaw staff, board and youth advisory panel members, Jigsaw’s Youth Research Council, academic partners (staff and students), YOULEAD consortium members, sector stakeholders and funders.
