PROJECTS AND PROGRAMMS
OLIC Mobile HEALTH
Oasis of Love Center (OLIC) takes physical and mental health to the doorstep of the people. Many people do not seek help when they are faced with psychological, emotional and physical health challenges due to lack of awareness, shame, stigma and poverty. Therefore OLIC provides free physical and mental health assessment, free blood pressure, blood sugar, depression, truama and anxiety screening, free malarial and thyphoid test to the communities.
The goal of this program is to reduce the incidence of illness and to increase the health seeking behavior of the people.

OLIC MENTAL HEALTH AWARENESS
Many Nigerians and Africans lack knowledge and awareness of mental health problems. OLIC go to schools, local communities and churches to educate, raise awareness and increase understanding of mental health in children, adolescents and women.
Mental health problems in young people are associated with outcomes such as suicide, substance use, inability to live independently, justice involvement, school dropout, economic hardship and physical health problems.
Untreated mental health needs among children and youth affect not only the young person and their family, but also schools, communities, workplaces and the nation as a whole. We are committed in raising awareness of mental health in Nigerian children and women to enable people understand the risk of living with mental health and promoting treatment sicking behavior in them.
