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.

What can teachers/parents/adults do?

If you suspect a problem you should:
• Be aware of the behaviours that concern them, note how long the behaviours have been going on, and how often and how severe they seem
• Send them to a mental health professional or the child’s doctor for evaluation and diagnosis
• Get accurate information from libraries, hotlines and other sources
• Ask questions about treatments and services in your community
• Talk to other families in your community
• Give them the South African Depression and Anxiety Group Help Line Number: (011) 783-1474

Everyone Can Help Prevent Suicide By:

• Eliminating myths about suicide
• Identifying people with risk factors for suicide
• Learning the warning signs of possible suicide
• Intervening early if there is a suspicion of suicide
• Following through to make sure that people with suicidal ideas, or plans have received the help they need
