Counsellors

SADAG Counselors are here to help South Africans from all Provinces and every walk of life.
Our success in destigmatizing Mental Health over 25 years has resulted in so many more people realising that help is just a phone call away

As much as we try to keep up with this demand, our costs continue to rise as we have to pay for EVERY incoming and toll free call. Our monthly Telkom bills are over R70,000 For every South African we help, we are also helping Telkom make more money!

Believe it or not, Telkom does not support or even allow SADAG a discount or reduction for the cost of our 20 lines on the many thousands of Rand we need each month.

We are therefore appealing to all our friends of SADAG for any donation towards keeping our Suicide Helplines up and running

Please click here to help donate towards our desperate need for funds to help us pay for our monthly phone bills.

And if you, or a friend, have a top Telkom contact, please ask them to appeal directly to give SADAG a big break on our monthly costs so we can continue helping hundreds of people every day.
We have all the NGO registrations and the BBEEE certificates to ensure all donations are Tax Free.

Regards and thank you for your support,

Zane Wilson (Ms)
