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.

Do you leave your Doctor’s appointment filled with more questions and not enough time? Sometimes feel too silly to ask all the questions you have on your symptoms and side effects you are experiencing? Join SADAG’s Facebook Friday FREE online Q&A to ask expert psychiatrists about your diagnosis, the symptoms and medication queries and where to go for help.

Starting the conversation about mental illness and encouraging people to ask questions helps to destigmatise mental health in our society. “Members of the community and those who suffer from a mental health issue need to consider bravely coming forward to help educate those people who misunderstand mental health. You never know, but one conversation you have with someone who misunderstands it can change the life of another person and, perhaps, even save their life” says Psychiatrist Dr Anthony Koller

SADAG is giving Facebook users the opportunity to get free online help to ask expert psychiatrists about their Mental Health issues that they wouldn’t normally get a chance or time to ask their doctor, or get answers for questions about symptoms that they or a loved one may be experiencing. They can even ask on behalf of their loved ones who live with a Mental Illness.

Facebook Friday FREE Q&A on 10th March will be held by two expert Psychiatrists from Akeso Milnerton Clinic – Dr Anthony Koller will be chatting at 1pm – 2pm and Dr Aneshree Moodley will continue and finish off the discussion from 7pm – 8pm.

To join the chats, LIKE SADAG’s Facebook Page: The South African Depression and Anxiety Group or go to www.sadag.org. Facebook Users that would like to remain anonymous can send a private message and SADAG will ask on their behalf. For free telephonic counselling call 0800 12 13 14 or send an SMS to 31393 and a counsellor will call them back.
