Oasis Counseling for women and children
The Oasis Wise Women program focuses on the issues of women ages 55 and older. It provides individual counseling to elderly women. In addition, Oasis hosts a twice-monthly Wise Women group at the Freedom Manor apartment community in Downtown Birmingham.
The need for the Wise Women program is great as Late-life depression affects about 6 million Americans age 65 and older, but only 10% receive treatment for depression. Older women are twice as likely as men to experience depression.
