Can games really heal us and even give us a reason to live?

I am fascinated with how games game help us heal and really value the insights about this form people who have been on teh edge of serious illness and depression. When game designer Jane McGonigal found herself bedridden and suicidal following a severe concussion, she had a fascinating idea for how to get better. She dove into the scientific research and created the healing game, SuperBetter.
