The Ocean Is Our Way of Life
Deep Blue Dive Therapy Inc, a non-profit organization dedicated to helping Active-Duty service members, Veterans & First Responders suffering from PTSD by introducing them to the amazing underwater world of scuba diving.
We are a Service-Disabled Veteran Owned Private Foundation and we are committed to serving those who serve or served.
According to the US Department of Veterans Affairs, 11–20 out of every 100 Gulf War veterans suffer PTSD in any given year. PTSD causes individuals to have a negative outlook on life, with thoughts of self-destructive behavior and other trauma related symptoms. Through our organization’s mission, we will be working with veterans, service members and first responders to reduce and eliminate these PTSD symptoms and create an outlet for their rage, trauma, or stress. We aim at giving veterans and service members a new certified skill while at the same time relieving them of PTSD and giving them better mental and physical outlook in life.
Our goal is to assist participants in locating partnered dive shop for training. Then participants accompany us on actual scuba diving excursions. Costs covered by donation include, but are not limited to, scuba training, scuba diving excursions, boat and scuba gear rentals, and all associated scuba diving fees.
So, join us in bringing scuba diving and all the wonderful experiences it can bring to PTSD sufferers by making a tax-deductible donation today!
