What is The Mentally STRONG Method?

The Mentally STRONG Method is a simple and practical do-it-yourself approach to managing your own mental health. Created by Dr. Cristi Bundukamara, Ed.D, PMHNP (Dr. B), The Mentally STRONG Method utilizes aspects of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to help you identify your thoughts, feelings, choices, and behaviors and understand the impact they have on your life. With The Mentally STRONG Method, you will learn how to map your thoughts in relation to past experiences and circumstances. The insight you gain will empower you to achieve your long-term goals and live a happier life. We know that you ARE Mentally STRONG, and we can all learn to be Mentally STRONGer!
