As a former law enforcement officer in the Netherlands, I founded the foundation with the help of the board as a result of a long personal battle against post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). I have found that scuba diving has a positive impact on people suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). After doing research into similar initiatives in America (Ministry of Veterans), I became convinced that diving therapy works, helps and I want to make that possible with the foundation!
