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.

Evidence-Based Research
May 22, 2013

An article in Time reports “a blood test may soon identify which pregnant women are at highest risk of developing postpartum depression, so [doctors] can seek treatment that could control their symptoms.” A new study found that women with postpartum depression had epigenetic modifications in their DNA. Additional research demonstrated that estrogen affected these genes. “Based on the levels of compounds made by these genes that could be picked up in the blood, these two genetic markers predicted with 85% accuracy which pregnant women went on to develop postpartum depression, and which ones did not.”

Read it in Time.

Read the study in Molecular Psychiatry.
