Uspeh depterapije v Rdečem morju

Potapljaške novice

A team from scuba-diving rehabilitation charity Deptherapy has completed what it describes as its biggest and most successful trening programme to date, involving 14 armed forces veterans with mental and/or physical injuries sustained in service.

Nadgradnja: GLOBINSKA TERAPIJA ZAPRTA V LETU 2023

Over a week at Roots Red Sea in El Quseir, Egypt, six programme-members qualified as PADI Odprta voda Divers, with all but one going on to complete the Advanced OWD course. A further five completed their PADI AOWD and Deep Speciality, and all 11 completed nitrox courses and a night dive.

The other three veterans took part as Instructors and Divemasters, including Chris Middleton, who lost both legs in Afghanistan. Currently a Potapljaški mojster, his aim is to become the first double-amputee PADI Inštruktor.

Štiri petine članov programa trpi za akutno posttravmatsko stresno motnjo in se lahko štejejo za "težko dosegljiv”, Pravi Depterapija, ki je zanje vzpostavil sistem Buddy Peer Support.

Rečeno je, da je en član med potovanjem razkril, da pred tem šest let ni zapustil hiše; drugi, da je bil ta dogodek prvič po njegovi diagnozi, da je lahko spregovoril o tem, kaj se mu je zgodilo.

“If you had asked me just over a year ago if I would be helping to teach fellow-veterans to scuba-dive I would have laughed,” said Andy Searle, a bilateral amputee and already-qualified diver who assisted with the trening. “Last week I had that opportunity. How does that feel? I’m not sure I can answer that as my emotions run so high.

»V vodi in zunaj nje me je podpirala ekipa Deptherapy, ki mi je spremenila življenje. Pomagati drugim, mojim ranjenim bratom po orožju, je pač največja čast.”

Chris Ganley, nekdanji član 1. bataljona The Rifles, je izgubil roko v nesreči z motorjem in se kvalificiral kot OWD in AOWD pri Roots. »To je bila neverjetna izkušnja – potapljanje je kot vstop v drug svet. Izjemna izkušnja, ki me bo spremljala vse življenje. Podpore, ki vam jo nudi ekipa, je neopisljivo. Deptherapy pravijo, da so družina; Zdaj sem del te družine.”

Deptherapy’s next trening programme in June will take 12 members on a Red Sea liveaboard. More about the chariry can be found tukaj
