Building Physical, Mental and Social Resilience Through Diving

Wyvern Resilience is a not-for-profit organisation run by veterans for the veteran community. We utilise dive training as a catalyst to facilitate physical, mental and social wellbeing and healthy living habits.

“Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.”

– Confucius

Our diving courses and activities are conducted in conjunction with physical, mental and social wellbeing education. These strategies have been tried and tested over decades of service in highly challenging conditions and in adverse environments.

Some our current programs

Open Water Diver course – 2 days residential

Next course – 27 – 29 Sept 2024 @ the Veteran Transition Centre

Build your confidence and add a fun and meaningful social activity to your life. We will spend two days in rural retreat learning diving skills and practicing general wellness strategies, which will allow you to manage stress and anxiety in all aspects of your life.

Open Water diver course – 2 days non-residential

Meet each day for three days to challenge yourself and learn the theory and skills to safely conduct a scuba dive. Along the way our instructor will share insights into maintaining healthy physical, mental and social wellbeing.

Dive education is provided in conjunction with science-based wellness strategies to allow you to practice the principles in real-time under the mentorship of fellow veterans.

Building a strong veteran community

After attending one of our dive programs you will be invited to connect with other veterans as a member of the Wanderers Dive Club. The club meets regularly for social dives and courses. These activities will allow you to continue engaging with this rewarding and enjoyable pastime whilst building friendships within the veteran community.
