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.

Please Take a Short Panic & Anxiety Questionnaire

As always 2015 has been an active year helping patients with Panic and Anxiety Attacks. South Africans have as much panic as others in the world, but virtually no research has been completed on panic and its impact on patients.  This year we have a really important research document for you to fill in for SADAG.  It is easy to access, anonymous and will only take 8 minutes. We have a researcher who will give us an overview of the results that we find from our members in South Africa.  If you are still fighting your own Panic and have not been able to go to a CBT expert please take a few minutes to look at the short videos on our website, with Dr Colinda Linde, who goes through breathing skills and other techniques that will help you. Click here for the questionnaire. 10 questions only. Please support us in this initiative.
