Unfortunately sometimes the lines do drop due to service providers or signal issues, and we do call outs from a landlines not the 0800 numbers. Perhaps you could DM us your details and we can see how we can help you more?

We don't have any psychologists manning our helpline... We have volunteer counsellors who work 24 hours a day. We work with about 8-16 Counsellors on shift from 8am-8pm, and then an emergency team in place afterhours.

There is a load of info about what is depression on our website, and even videos that explain it really well. It is a whole body illness that affects the way that you feel, the way you act, the way you think and the way you behave. Depression has physical & emotional symptoms

The most important thing you can do is explain that it is a real illness just like diabetes or hypertension, it needs real treatment. No one says "snap out of it, it's just Diabetes" . So why do we say that for depression?

There is still a lot of stigma and misunderstanding around depression! Unfortunately there are many people who think depression is a choice or a sign of weakness.

Diepsloot matriculants are in need of Matric Dance outfits. Some learners don't attend the event due to financial constraints. SADAG encourages you to donate Martic Dance dresses, shoes, boys jackets, suits & shirts. Email anne@anxiety.org.za or call 0800 21 22 23 to drop off.
