Mentally STRONG Treatment Provides
Mentally STRONG is a privately-owned mental and behavioral health organization in Colorado Springs with a refreshing, new approach to helping individuals and organizations improve their mental well-being. We developed The Mentally STRONG Method, which we use in our Colorado Springs Mental Health Center.
Created by founder Dr. Cristi Bundukamara, Ed.D, PMHNP, The Mentally STRONG Method is an empowering approach to managing one’s mental health. It utilizes aspects of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) to help patients identify their thoughts, feelings, choices, and behaviors to understand the impact these have on one’s life.
Mentally STRONG is a unique mental health organization because we take the mystery out of mental and behavioral health by giving people the wisdom, tools, and support needed to participate actively in their mental well-being. Our Colorado Springs Mental Health Clinic offers people comprehensive services by scheduling their first appointment within two weeks. We provide mental and behavioral health counseling and medication management together with a pharmacy technician onsite.
With The Mentally STRONG Method, anyone can learn how to map their thoughts about past experiences and circumstances. Through this exercise, clients gain critical insights that empower them to achieve their long-term goals and live a more fulfilling life.
We also have online courses through the Mentally STRONG Academy (link to page), which consist of interactive videos designed to further a client’s understanding of The Mentally STRONG Method while receiving support through our Mental Health Center. Learn more about the Mentally STRONG Academy here.
