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.

You should be relaxed and well, but rich food, festive-season pressure and days spent lazing by the pool have their own unique hazards... Christmas can be a lonely time for many people. Major depressive disorder (MDD) may be diagnosed if you have had a significant depressed mood or loss of interest and pleasure for a period of at least two weeks. Depression affects your thoughts, mood and physical being. Besides biological factors or being genetically predisposed, psychosocial factors can cause depression too. Stressful situations such as rising costs (financial concerns) and legal problems often precede an episode. Symptoms: you may experience loss of interest or pleasure in hobbies and activities, including sex. You may also have feelings of guilt and worthlessness. Overeating and weight gain, or not having an appetite, are common occurrences. Highly depressed people usually have thoughts of death or attempt suicide. Treatments & remedies: talk therapy and antidepressants are recommended treatments, so consult your doctor for advice. Relaxation and meditation are also effective ways to treat depression. • Useful contacts j • IBS Self Help and support Croup (online support : group): www.ibsgroup.org ] • Depression and Anxiety croup: 011 262-6396 I • Postnatal Depression Croup: 082-882-0072 .
