Deptherapy team visits PADI headquarters in Bristol

-

PADI staff were honoured to welcome Dr Richard Cullen and the service personnel his charity Deptherapy endeavours to support to the PADI headquarters in Bristol.

Dr Richard Cullen took time out of his schedule to teach PADI staff firsthand, along with the help of the Deptherapy divers, about the horrors of the injuries sustained, both mental and physical, and how through scuba diving, they are able to breathe a new lease of life. The truly inspirational speakers left PADI staff in awe at how they have turned the impossible into the possible.

The English charity, registered with the Charity Commission of England and Wales, operates within two distinct areas:

Deptherapy, where they seek to rehabilitate injured UK Armed Service personnel and veterans who have suffered life-changing mental and/or physical challenges through the medium of scuba diving.

Deptherapy Education, where they train instructors and Divemasters to work with those who have mental and physical challenges. It is also a campaigning organisation that seeks to raise awareness throughout the dive industry about disability and diving, and making diving accessible to those who have mental or physical challenges.
