Dean Owen

Chief Executive Officer

Since forming No Duff, Dean Owen has played a crucial role in the continued success of the services No Duff provide. Our exceptional skill set, true passion and own experiences have inspired people to come to terms with their Mental Health and help remove the stigma.

Having seen service in HM Forces, HMP, Police and RSPCA there isn't a lot that I haven't seen or that shocks me anymore. My aim is to help those of us who have kept the monsters at bay, but who too fight their own Demons and Black Dogs. I was diagnosed with Severe PTSD and Adjustment disorder in 2009 which led to my Medical Retirement from the Police Service.

Dean has also conducted Humanitarian Aid Missions in Ukraine and is the founder of NDUK Op Sunflower. His next Operation will see him returning to Ukraine under the name "Operation Fidelis".
