PSYCHED 31 is a one-month mental detox uniquely designed to inspire participants to face and overcome the daily obstacles that stand between us and our personal fulfillment in life. Each writing builds on the last, complete with a corresponding short film and prompt questions for further contemplation inspired by Dr. Henderson’s many years of experience as a psychiatrist, his own personal success in overcoming depression and anxiety, and his life’s passion for helping people find redemption beyond their pain.

That fact weights heavily on the young high school junior athlete and haunts his dreams. During his varsity basketball season JD, as his friends call him, and his mother receive the news that his father was, in fact, killed in action in Iraq and the body is returned home for burial. At the same time, the young athlete breaks his right arm in a basketball game that takes him out of action for six weeks and he finds out his girl friend is moving out of town due to her father’s army transfer. These events drive him into a deep depression and his tortured nightmares return. JD helps a new transfer student, who is a paraplegic, out of a tight spot at the high school on the new student’s first day there. Because of the loss of the use of his legs, the wheelchair bound student also suffers from depression and questions the value in living. Events lead the two students to begin a friendship that leads to both of them learning new life lessons.
