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.

These fellowships look for proposals that will help reduce stigma and discrimination by informing the public about mental health issues and experiences. There are two fellowships available to South African journalists annually together with six American and two Romanian journalists. The South African fellows are awarded grants of R50 000 to study and report on a particular issue within the mental health field for one year. They are administered by the South African Depression and Anxiety Support Group.

In September Fellows will make an all expense paid trip to The Carter Center in Atlanta, Georgia to meet advisers, task force members and other fellows to discuss their projects challenges and successes in mental health reporting.
