ROMBi celebrates Mental Health Awareness Week

ROMBi is getting behind Mental Health Awareness Week and looking at the benefits that using ROMBi daily can bring.

Mental Health Awareness Week in the UK was established by the Mental Health Foundation, which was founded in 1949.

The Mental Health Foundation has been the UK’s leading charity for everyone’s mental health, with prevention at the heart of what they do. They aim to find and address the sources of mental health problems so that people and communities can thrive.

The Foundation’s annual event aims to raise awareness of a topic related to mental health each year and to provide support for those who need it. This year’s theme is ‘nature’.

There are a range of resources available in support of this year’s ‘nature’ theme, including a ‘Connect with Nature School Pack’, which looks at ways you can help young people improve and maintain their mental health and wellbeing.

Nature has played a critical role in our mental health during the pandemic. The Mental Health Foundation’s research shows that spending time outdoors has been one of the key factors enabling people to cope with the stress of the Covid-19 pandemic – “Throughout the pandemic, nearly half (45%) of people in the UK told us that visiting green spaces, such as parks, helped them to cope.”

The Mental Health Foundation is managing the ongoing, UK-wide, repeated cross-sectional study of how the pandemic is affecting people’s mental health and leading on a study looking at the impact of the pandemic on adolescent mental health. More information on this research can be found here!

There are over 2.3 million students studying in UK universities; many experiencing anxiety, stress and, rather than enjoying their new found freedom of adult study, may be overwhelmed by the new challenges of university life.

For University Mental Health Day in March, we explored how university communities came together to support mental health and wellbeing. The full article is available here!

We also looked at how ROMBi is supporting individuals with their mental health. By using the puzzle just once a day individuals found that ROMBi:

  • Organises thoughts;
  • Supports with managing stress;
  • Supports decision making;
  • Improves memory;
  • Improves motor skills.

ROMBi, which was created by Psychoanalyst and Education Specialist, Penny Georgiou is now raising awareness in countries across the world and changing mindsets.

The puzzle helps people to organise their thoughts in a coherent way, which is having a direct impact on the rest of their lives.

ROMBi comes with engaging puzzle sheets and is available as either a 16 or 36 piece set. Just one puzzle a day will have a significant effect on anyone’s ability to effectively manage home lives, work or studies.
