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.

Learn about your sleep patterns and habits by keeping a daily sleep diary. It may be key to helping you and your health care provider diagnose and treat a sleep disorder. Make up a chart with spaces for:
• The time you went to bed and woke up
• How long and well you slept
• When you were awake during the night
• How much caffeine or alcohol you consumed and when
• What/when you ate and drank
• What emotion or stress you had
• What drugs or medications you took

Here is an example of a sleep diary. Print it out and use it or create your own sleep diary.
