Literacy is a luxury that many of us take for granted. That is why SADAG created SPEAKING BOOKS and revolutionized the way healthcare information is delivered to low literacy communities.

The customizable 16-page book, read by local celebrity audio recordings, ensures that vital health and social messages can be seen, heard, read and understood by everyone across the world.

We started with books on Teen Suicide prevention , HIV, AIDS and Depression, Understanding Mental Health and have developed over 100+ titles, such as TB, Malaria, Polio, Vaccines for over 45 countries.

DEPRESSION GROUP GETS RECORD CALLS

A DRAMATIC spike in calls for assistance and advice about depression and suicide has been experienced by the South African Depression and Anxiety Group (Sadag).
Spokesman Cassey Amoore said this past festive season was ?the busiest we?ve ever experienced?.
?With the economic crisis of 2009 we?ve seen an increase in calls for help and advice. The problems people are experiencing are also a lot more complex due to financial issues and range from losing everything to having to go without chronic medication because people cannot afford their medical aids,? she said.
Amoore added Sadag was receiving between 200 and 300 calls each day which had made it necessary to ?double up on counsellors on Sundays?~ ?It doesn?t seem to be slowing down either. With matric results coming out we are expecting a further increase in calls,? said Amoore.
She added both parents and mattic pupils were calling for advice on a range of issues including not receiving the marks they were expecting and problems with university and college admissions.
