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. In this moving talk, McGonigal explains how a game can boost resilience -- and promises to add 7.5 minutes to your life.

I just watched this talk and immediately wanted to share it with everyone here.  It is good.  She does not get to the part about her brain injury until about halfway through but watch the whole talk.  It is only 19 minutes long.

Hope, do you have a link for the video you are talking about?  Was it a TEDx talk?  I'd love to see it.
