Insight – RIO PREPARE FOR WILL AND POKEMON GO LIFTS DEPRESSION – 07.14.16

“I plan on winning a Paralympic gold medal at the 2016 Rio Games”…that sums up Will Lachenauer – member of the US Paralympic National Cycling Team that’s Rio bound.  My talk with Will further demonstrates that despite life circumstances that seem incredibly daunting, determination and resiliency can get one through the worst of times.  From motocross racer, climber. Mountain bike competitor to nationally ranked hand crank cyclist post his accident – Will’s remarkable zeal for life, family and work have given him an entire new perspective though the only thing Will says he can’t do nowadays is change light bulbs.  Seems like a 90’s flashback that Pokemon is ubiquitous but the new Go version is prompting people who suffer from depression, agoraphobia and more to leave  their homes.  Can a game help treat mental illness and more through distraction?
