October is Spina Bifida Awareness Month.
Individuals with Spina Bifida have an increased risk of depression during their life.
If you have felt down or hopeless during the past month and have lost interest in your favorite activities, you can ask for help and get treatment to feel better.
A psychiatrist is the most qualified person to treat mental health issues.
