CPF LIVE! with Minnelly Vasquez: Mental Health

CPF Executive Director Rachel Byrne and Minnelly Vasquez, Licensed Clinical Social Worker with the Weinberg Cerebral Palsy Center at Columbia University Irving Medical Center, discuss mental health care for individuals with cerebral palsy and caregivers.

"We are social creatures, we need to be interacting and that helps our emotional growth. And when we don't have access to that emotional growth, our mind, which is a powerful thing, it can pull us down or lift us up. And when we don't have that social connection, it pulls us down."
