Dr. Glenda Demas and her son Christian Lewis were recently interviewed by Amanda Seth, on Amazing 102.5 FM, a radio station that stands as a beacon of positivity and transformation. Through the waves, Amanda introduces this duo whose mission is to change lives, one listener at a time to share important news on their newly developed MyMyndMyMenral mental wellness app. Here is a summary of part 1 of the interview.
Advocates of Change: Dr. Glenda Demas and Christian Lewis
Amanda’s excitement is palpable as she welcomes her guests into the studio. The guests of honor are none other than Dr. Glenda Demas and Christian Lewis. Dr. Glenda Demas, a native Houstonian, wears her 13 years of Behavioral Health Management experience like a badge of honor. Her journey into mental health advocacy started in the education system and the foster care system, where she found her true calling. Dr. Demas now stands as a guiding light, not just as an experienced psychotherapist, but also as a board member of the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) Greater Houston.
Beside her sits Christian Lewis, a college student with a vision. His journey from Houston to the University of Missouri was a transformative leap. In the face of unknown challenges, he discovered his inner strength and resilience. As a mental health advocate, he teamed up with his mother, Dr. Demas, to pave the way for positive change. Their stories are a testament to the power of self-discovery, growth, and the unbreakable bond between a mother and her son.
A Glimpse into Their World: Three Words
Amanda’s curiosity takes the form of a request for three words that define each guest. Dr. Demas, a woman of determination and purpose, describes herself as “goal-oriented,” “focused,” and “intentional.” Christian, a visionary in his own right, embraces the words “ambitious,” “Visionaire,” and a “go-getter.”
The MyMindMyMental Wellness App
The excitement in the studio reaches a crescendo as Amanda guides the conversation toward the heart of the matter—their collaboration on the “MyMindMyMental Wellness” app. This app, however, is not just another face in the sea of mental health applications. It stands out as a true advocate for mental wellness, incorporating unique features and approaches that set it apart from the rest.
Building a Wellness Community
Dr. Demas and Christian embarked on a mission to create a community, not just an app. They understood that mental wellness is a journey that requires ongoing support and guidance. Unlike other apps that merely facilitate appointments, “MyMindMyMental Wellness” fosters a sense of belonging. Clients can choose to work with the same therapist, building a strong therapeutic relationship over time.
An Algorithm for Empowerment
Recognizing the importance of continuity, Dr. Demas and Christian integrated a revolutionary algorithm into the app. This algorithm goes beyond appointment scheduling—it provides insights into the user’s mental health behavior outside therapy sessions. This innovation serves as a tool for clinicians to understand their clients’ progress, challenges, and victories in their day-to-day lives.
Bridging the Gap: Tools and Resources
As the conversation unfolds, Amanda delves deeper into the tools and resources the app offers. The focus is not just on booking therapy sessions but on holistic mental wellness. The app fosters a well-being community and the ability to have a dedicated therapist of your choice for all your individual sessions, these two attributes sets the app apart from other booking apps.
Empowering Through Knowledge
Dr. Demas has always been a firm believer in the potential of hard work and dedication. She imparts these values not just to Christian, but to all those she touches. Her journey from Houstonian to mental health advocate stands as an inspiration. Recognized for her contributions, she brings mental health out of the shadows, championing a world where no one walks alone.
A Beacon of Hope
The MyMindMyMental wellness app, co-founded by Dr. Glenda Demas and Christian Lewis, emerges as a beacon of hope for Houston and beyond. It is a testament to the power of unity, advocacy, and the boundless potential of the human mind. With each user it touches, this app brings us one step closer to a world where mental wellness is not just a destination, but a lifelong journey of growth, empowerment, and transformation.
