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.

In addition to PTSD medications and therapy, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) help can come in the form of community resources and PTSD support groups. Family members of those with PTSD may also benefit from these PTSD recovery resources.

Many people feel alone with their PTSD, or other type of anxiety disorder, and part of PTSD recovery often includes understanding that many people are suffering in the same ways as you. Millions of people are living with post-traumatic stress disorder and many of them help each other every day. Feeling connected with a group of people who truly understand what it is to suffer from PTSD can be a powerful form of PTSD help.

Veterans have additional post-traumatic stress disorder help available through Veteran's Affairs (the VA) and other veteran groups. Veteran PTSD support groups can be particularly useful for those suffering from military-service-related PTSD, as veterans may feel like those who have not served do not truly understand what they are feeling.

In-Person PTSD Help
In-person PTSD help can be received from anyone in the life of a person suffering from PTSD. You may find it through:
• Friends and family
• Faith leaders and groups
• Community organizations
• Outpatient programs
• Veteran's Affairs medical centers – all offer PTSD treatment
• Veteran organizations (in the case of those having served in the military)

Formal PTSD recovery groups are also available. Some of these groups are dedicated to PTSD recovery and others focus on anxiety disorders in general. Find post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) support groups and help through:

Anxiety Disorder Association of America (ADAA) offers self-help information online as well as information on PTSD support groups
ADAA also offers information on finding a therapist for anxiety disorders
National Center for PTSD provides further information on finding a PTSD recovery therapist
Department of Veteran's Affairs (VA) offers a program locator which allows searching for PTSD recovery treatment programs by state
The VA National Center for PTSD also offers several help options for those who have served in the military

PTSD Support Groups Online
In-person PTSD help may not be available everywhere and some people may not feel comfortable seeking in-person help; this is where online help comes in. PTSD recovery information and post-traumatic stress disorder (PSTD) support groups are plentiful online.

You can find online post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) help and support through:

HealthyPlace PTSD forums
Anxiety Disorder Association of America offers online forums as well as self-help information:
PTSD Forums provide online PTSD peer support groups
Daily Strength provides online PTSD peer support groups
Mental Health of America provides online PTSD information for the general public and for veterans specifically
