- Learning to Overcome Depression
Thank you for your interest in our online program for overcoming depression. Unfortunately, this program -- written in 1999 -- is now too vulnerable to malicious internet security attacks. We do not currently have the resources to recreate it using modern programming standards. Therefore, we have unhappily had to shut it down. Please check back periodically. We hope to restore this website if we can find funding for a modern reprogramming. As an alternative, consider the MoodGym website:

- THE FREEDOM CLIMB - International
God planted within the heart of OM's Cathey Anderson the idea to bring together ordinary women from all over the world to climb Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest mountain in Africa. The women's goal would be to bring awareness and funding to combat oppression, exploitation and global trafficking.
Cathey, who works with OM USA Donor Relations, says the climb is expected to take place during January 2012. "We have just begun the process of inviting women with influence and passion for the purpose to join us. We'd like to have no more than 35 do the actual climb, but we are encouraging more to hold what we call a 'Freedom Climb' event, and asking each woman who climbs to have a group of women at home doing their own Freedom Climb event.
