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.

The Rosebank Depression support group was started around 2000. It was started by one of the priests, Julia, at St Martins Church. Julia felt there was a need for a group in the the community to meet regularly and discuss the many aspects of depression and anxiety. Julia left the group when she had twins! and I took over organising the group. Linda Trump helped with presentations and finding speakers for many years ,but as she was also running the Bipolar Group, found she couldn't do both. Fortunately, Marguerite Theron, a counselling psychologist now leads our meetings.

New members are referred to me by SADAG and I really enjoy speaking with them and giving them information about our group. I believe that the group gives members hope, a feeling of belonging, more information about depression and anxiety and the knowledge that they are not alone in their illness.
Some of the topics introduced by Marguerite included sleep problems, dreams, anxiety.
At each meeting members are given the opportunity to share how they are feeling.
In the group are members who have been coming for many years and find the group has helped their wellness. People are very welcome to come and experience the support group for themselves.

“Supporting other people I have to be helpful in my own healing and wellbeing.
Going to the meetings is an amazing learning experience for me as well as all
the other members .”
