Dive Guardians is a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit consisting of dive professionals, dive enthusiasts, and both retired and active First Responders who wish to give back to a community that has always been there for them. Our mission is to assist those individuals who, either through life experiences or the nature of their profession have experienced traumatic events. We create an environment that uses a combination of an individual/group resiliency program and SCUBA diving to nurture healing and self-improvement. SCUBA diving and the overall therapeutic properties of water have been proven to be ideal in helping people rehabilitate from various physical and mental injuries such as spinal cord injuries, PTSd, Traumatic Brain Injuries, and General Anxiety Disorder (GAD). Our program is designed to be free to the applicant. Dive Guardians is an organization that fosters camaraderie, teamwork, and friendship. When you get accepted into Dive Guardians, you become part of a family.
