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.

For many people the festive season is not a time of celebration, but a time of anxiety and emotional vulnerability. The good news is that help is just a phone-call away

While December is usually a month of celebration, the festive season is in fact not a joyful, relaxing experience for everyone. For various reasons, many people – especially those who are emotionally vulnerable or have problems with their mental health – find it a very stressful and lonely time.

The good news is there is no need to struggle alone, as help is available. We have compiled a list of helplines that you or someone close to you can call when it seems as though the pressures of the season are becoming overwhelming.

These helplines offer immediate access to confidential, free and anonymous support and advice, so print out and keep the phone numbers or save them on your phone for easy access.

Remember, no-one needs to suffer in silence – help is at hand!
