SPEAKING BOOKS

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 Psychological Society of South Africa (PsySSA) in partnership with Pan-African Psychology Union (PAPU) hosted the 1st Pan-African Psychology Congress at the International Convention Centre in Durban from 18 September 2017 – 21 September 2017.

According to PAPU President, Prof. Saths Cooper, “PAPU 2017 boasts an array of presenters from across Africa, the African Diaspora and the rest of the globe who wish to pursue the boundaries of their psychological profession.”

According to Sumaya Laher, the outgoing President of PsySSA, “The Congress theme for 2017 is ‘Psychology in Society’ which represents an historic moment in which local, regional and international collaborations can set the scene for more responsive Psychology that speaks to issues of social justice and equity.”

The aims of the Congress were to advance the profession of psychology, to exchange ideas and scientific knowledge and to collaborate with international and regional organisations in matters of mutual interest. It is of great significance that over 600 presentations were made during the Congress which added great value and significance to the over 1200 attendees.

SADAG was a proud partner of the Conference by hosting an Exhibition Stand and disseminating important Mental Health ICT materials to the attendees. Furthermore Yolanda Mitchell, an independent researcher for SADAG, presented 3 talks at the Conference with the focus being on Speaking Books, Teen Suicide Prevention and Hate Crime.

SADAG also distributed copies of the ‘Mental Health Matters Journal’ which is published every two months and provides health care practitioners with useful mental health information.

SADAG also won the prestigious President’s Award at the Conference. The Award was presented to Anne Rajcoomar, Project Manager at SADAG by Prof. Sodi, the new Chairperson of PsySSA. It was indeed an honour and a privilege to have been a part of this Congress which saw delegates from all over the world exchange ideas, ideologies and new innovations in the field of Psychology.
