Improve Mental Health with the Mentally STRONG Method
We believe in hope and trust, and are committed to building a stronger, healthier culture that begins with dignity, power, and choice. We believe that every person can be Mentally STRONG if given the wisdom, tools, and support to actively participate in improving their mental health.
The Mentally STRONG Method was created by founder Dr. Cristi Bundukamara Ed.D, PMHNP-BC, who has been a psychiatric nurse practitioner for over 20 years. She made the Mentally STRONG Method to help herself overcome some of the most challenging experiences of her personal life and is dedicated to helping others do the same.
Over the years, the Mentally STRONG team has worked with many clients who experience frequent feelings of stress, depression, anxiety, and low self-esteem. These feelings cause them to struggle to interpret and deal with negative things in their environment. This type of thinking can often result in even more negative emotions and behaviors, leaving the client feeling disempowered.
Our goal is to help them improve their mental health by developing new skills and behaviors that are productive and geared toward obtaining their desired goals. The Mentally STRONG Method draws on various aspects of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) to teach you how to identify and challenge self-defeating thoughts, feelings, and behaviors so you can live a happier life.
Many common challenges such as stress, lack of confidence, and poor communication skills result from negative self-perception. With the Mentally STRONG Method, you will gain a deeper understanding of whatever is at the root of your struggles and move towards improving your mental health to become the best version of yourself.
We offer multiple online courses and coaching programs designed to teach you how to use the Mentally STRONG Method to identify what might be stopping you from reaching your full potential and what action is needed to take charge of your situation. Our self-guided approach will allow you to use these newfound skills at home or on the go.
The Mentally STRONG Method in Action
Thought Mapping is one of our four elements of the Mentally STRONG Method. It is a multi-sensory technique to help keep you moving forward instead of ruminating on past problems. It can also help you understand how your past impacts the present and gain insight into why you’re making decisions.
