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.

Please help SADAG with our quick online Bipolar Survey

We at SADAG would like to improve our knowledge and understanding of how South Africans suffering from Bipolar Disorder experience their treatment (including medication, therapy, and overall support) that they receive for their disorder.

This would help us to identify ways in which they need better support in South Africa. .

There is very little information available about the experience of South Africans suffering from Bipolar Disorder. In particular, we would like to know about the types of treatment available to you ; how you access treatment;
how effective that treatment is; and whether you experience stigma related to your disorder.

We greatly value information straight from you as the person with the illness, so please help us by anonymously taking this short online survey. Please click button below.
