SPEAKING BOOKS

suicide book

Literacy is a luxury that many of us take for granted.  We depend on written communication for information, guidance, and access to heath care information That is why SADAG created SPEAKING BOOKS and revolutionized the way information is delivered to low literacy communities. It's exactly what it sounds like.a book that talks to the reader in his or her local  language, delivering critical information in an interactive, and educational way.

The customizable 16-page book, accompanied by local celebrity audio recordings, ensures that vital health and social messages can be seen, heard, read and understood..

We started with books on Teen Suicide prevention , HIV, AIDS and Depression, Understanding Mental Health and have developed over 30 titles, such as TB, Malaria, Polio, Vaccines for over 30 countries.

Kevin Bolon
SADAG Board Member, Psychologist

 

We were deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Kevin Bolon. He was a founding board member for SADAG, 23 years ago. A brilliant psychologist and the most wonderful friend of SADAG who was always here for us.

We are stunned by his untimely passing and his absence will be felt by all of us.

He had a particular interest in OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder), and became the OCD voice of South Africa, and mentored so very many during his impressive career.  
He also introduced to South Africa the first ever Fear of Flying courses, enabling all those that took his course to take advantage of air travel.

Kevin was a regular lecturer at WITS Medical School focusing on CBT and had the gift of taking his extensive experience and understanding of complex concepts, and making them accessible and clear. He regularly wrote articles and did interviews discussing CBT and his papers were frequently published in Psychiatric Journals.
His presentations to counselors, sponsors, and media were something quite special, accompanied by Kevin’s own brand of humor and his unique style of delivery, always informal, that resonated throughout the whole meeting.  

We will never forget Kevin and what he meant to all of us.
Our heartfelt condolences to his Wife Fulvia, his children Stefan and Mila, they have lost a remarkable husband and father.  

Kevin’s Memorial Service will take place on Tuesday, 3 May 2016, at 10h00 in the Slome Auditorium at Beit Emanuel (38 Oxford Road, Parktown, Johannesburg)

Regards,
SADAG Board
