Two members of the Jigsaw staff visited the centre today and spoke about the service they offer. They recommended some sites that we could check out as part of their visit.






So what did we learn?

Jigsaw deals with mental health issues..they talked about Britney Spears, Selena Gomez, “The Rock Johnson, Cara Delevingne, David Beckham and other  celebrities who are experiencing negative mental health problems and the involvement of the media in regard to same.

Inside Out  movies deals with mental health issues “Riley (Kaitlyn Dias) is a happy, hockey-loving 11-year-old Midwestern girl, but her world turns upside-down when she and her parents move to San Francisco. Riley’s emotions — led by Joy (Amy Poehler) — try to guide her through this difficult, life-changing event. However, the stress of the move brings Sadness (Phyllis Smith) to the forefront. When Joy and Sadness are inadvertently swept into the far reaches of Riley’s mind, the only emotions left in Headquarters are Anger, Fear and Disgust.” Worth checking out.
