Profile Of The South African Depression And Anxiety Group

Mental illness, and the stigma surrounding it, is a critical issue in South Africa. The South African Depression and Anxiety Group (SADAG) is at the forefront of patient advocacy, education and destigmatisation of mental illness in the country. Its expertise lies in assisting patients and callers throughout South Africa with mental health queries.

SADAG is a Non-Profit Organisation, a Registered Section 21 Company, with an 18a tax exemption. It has on its board a powerful team of Patients, Psychiatrists, Psychologists, and General Practitioners. SADAG was established twenty years ago to serve as a support network for the thousands of South Africans who live with mental health problems. Currently, it is estimated that 1 in 5 people will, or do, suffer from a mental illness. SADAG manages a 16-line counselling-and-referral call centre, and is the voice of patient advocacy, working in urban, peri-urban, and the most rural communities across South Africa.

 

SADAG’s activities are carried out through:  

  • A network of over 200 Support Groups throughout South Africa (including outreach groups in remote rural areas), where the community members lack access to resources and have no funds for treatment.
  • A professional counselling staff, headquartered in Sandton, Gauteng, who operate the counselling lines from 8am to 8pm, seven days a week.
  • Educational materials, including free multilingual brochures on mental health issues, including depression, bipolar, PTSD, OCD, anxiety, trauma, sleeping disorders, schizophrenia, teen suicide and substance abuse.
  • A monthly newsletter is sent out to over 20 000 callers and we have DVD’s and books available.
  • A referral service to mental health professionals, and free medical treatment where available.
  • A comprehensive and informative website that can be accessed at www.sadag.org
  • SADAG offers workshops and training programmes countrywide, in various languages. These include Commercial and large Corporates, Traditional Healers, Home-Based Care Workers, Hospitals and Clinics, Correctional Facilities, Schools, Universities, Churches, and Youth Groups. Topics include Depression, Panic, Bipolar, Dealing with Stress, PTSD, Suicide Prevention and Mental Health Stigma.
  • SADAG has worked in schools in all 9 provinces, with learners, parents and educators. Our programme “Suicide Shouldn’t be a Secret” is aimed at reducing SA’s high rate of teen suicide. 9.5 % of all teen deaths are due to suicide. SADAG teaches youths that Depression is treatable and Suicide is preventable.
  • SADAG also does extensive EAPs, corporate training, and employee wellness days.
  • Powerful media campaigns designed to destigmatise mental illness and promote mental health are at the forefront of SADAG’s patient advocacy work. In order to achieve this, SADAG runs TV and radio adverts, sends out weekly press releases to print, radio and electronic media, as well as running specific campaigns to raise awareness of Bipolar Disorder, Teen Suicide, Men and Depression and Panic Disorder. SADAG has produced over a dozen radio adverts, in various languages, and 8 TV adverts. Most months, SADAG’s media exposure amounts to over R5 million.
  • SADAG is recognised for its work in rural communities in the identification of depression in HIV and Aids patients, and the training of Home-based Care Workers in how to recognise the symptoms, as well as where to access treatment for their patients. Many have started support groups in their community.

Our aim is to use our unique holistic cycle to transform these children back into effective and sustainable members of society. Our holistic cycle involves awareness, outreach, rehabilitation, education, aftercare, and skills development/ job creation. Through this we are able to rehabilitate hundreds of children and reunite hundreds of families. We appeal to the public to not give people begging at the traffic lights any money, this only enables their life on the street and encourages their drug addictions. Instead, donate to I Care, who use the money to directly help and impact the lives of these children.

 

Don't give children begging on the streets money- Give them a future. Donate to I Care and help these children receive the future that they deserve.

Durban South Baptish Church - Glenwood

Sunday Service Times:  10:00am

Physical Address: 47 Deodar Ave, Glenwood, Durban

Telephone:  031 261 4966

Website: dsbaptist.co.za

 

Language: English

Ministries:  Creche

                      Prayer, Ladies, Children Ministry

                     Seniors Outreach

What we believe
In the Scriptures of the Old and New Testament in their original writings as fully inspired of God, and accepts them as the final authority for faith and life.
In one God eternally existing in three persons – Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
That Jesus Christ was begotten by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, and is true God and true man.
That God created man in His own image, that man sinned and thereby incurred the penalty of death, physical and spiritual; and that all human beings inherit a sinful nature; which issues (in the case of those who have reached moral responsibility) in actual transgression involving personal guilt.
That the Lord Jesus died for our sins, a substitutionary sacrifice, according to the Scriptures, and that all who believe in Him are justified on the ground of His shed blood.
In the bodily resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ, His ascension into heaven, and His present life as our High Priest and Advocate.
In the personal return of the Lord Jesus Christ.
In the personality of the Holy Spirit, His regenerating work, and abiding presence in the true believer.
That all who receive the Lord Jesus Christ by faith are born again of he Holy Spirit and thereby become children of God.
That all Christians are called to a life of holiness, devotion to the Lord Jesus Christ and service for Him.
In the resurrection both of the just and the unjust, the eternal blessedness of the redeemed, and the eternal banishment of those who have rejected the offer of salvation.
We believe in heterosexual relationships between a natural man and a natural woman within the confines of lawful matrimony.  Adherence to this stated principle of sexual behavior is an inherent requirement for membership with the Durban South Baptist Church.
Statement of Baptist Principles: The Church further believes in the following distinctive Baptist emphases:

The CHURCH as the whole company of those who have been redeemed by Jesus Christ and regenerated by the Holy Spirit. The local church, being a manifestation of the universal church, is a community of believers in a particular place where the Word of God is preached and the ordinances of Believer’s Baptism and the Lord’s Supper are observed. It is fully autonomous and remains so notwithstanding responsibilities it may accept by voluntary association.

BELIEVER’S BAPTISM as an act of obedience to our Lord Jesus Christ and a sign of personal repentance, faith and regeneration; it consists of the immersion in water into the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

The CONGREGATIONAL PRINCIPLE, namely that each member has the privilege and responsibility to use his/her gifts and abilities to participate fully in the life of the church.  We recognize that God gifts His Church Overseers, who are called Pastors or Elders, whose primary function is to lead in a spirit of servant hood, to equip the members and to provide spiritual oversight, and Deacons whose primary function to facilitate the smooth functioning of the Church.  This principle further recognizes that each member should participate in the church’s leaders, and that a constituted church meeting, subject to the direct Lordship of Christ and the authority of Scripture, is the highest court of authority for the local church.

The PRIESTHOOD OF ALL BELIEVERS, by which we under stand that each Christian has direct access to God through Christ our High Priest, and shared with Him in His work of reconciliation. This involves intercession, worship, faithful service and bearing witness to Jesus Christ, even to the ends of the earth.

The principle of RELIGIOUS LIBERTY, namely, that no individual should be coerced either by the State or by any secular, ecclesiastical or religious group in matters of faith.   The right of private conscience is to be respected.   For each believer this means the right to interpret the Scriptures responsibly and to act in the light of his conscience.

The principle of SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE in that, in the providence of God, the two differ in their respective natures and functions.   The Church is not to be identified with the State nor is it, in its faith or practice, to be directed or controlled by the State.   The State is responsible for administering justice, ensuring an orderly community, and promoting the welfare of its citizens. The Church is responsible for preaching the Gospel and for demonstrating and making known God’s will and care for all mankind.

COGS is a christian church in Durban North, South Africa.​

We are a group of people who believe the Bible, and who have been reconciled to God, our Father and Creator, through the saving work of God, the Son, whose name is Jesus.

We love to live our lives together, because we believe we have been made in God's image for community living, just as God is three-in-one.

We exist on Earth to continue Jesus' work of reconciling people to God, through the power of God, the Spirit, who is still with us, working in us and through us for this purpose.

COGS has been around since 1901 in various forms, and under various names and leaderships, and still today it is our privilege to be one of the many parts and expressions of God's family in Durban and around the world.

At COGS we enjoy being together with people of all ages, races and types. Our kids worship with us, and enjoy their own relevant teaching at their level. Kids and youth groups get together at various times through the week, ladies gather for their own relational times, as do the men. Grannies and Grampa's enjoy each other's company, and basically we just like to live our lives in relationship with one another. 

But also, we love to bring God's kingdom into the communities around us by community upliftment, counselling the broken-hearted and traumatised, caring for orphans, and so much more. Read up on our various "Projects" and how to "Get Involved" in the menu tabs above.

Reach. “Every person, Every Campus & Every Nation.”
Every Person: We would like to reach every person we know with the gospel of Jesus Christ. We plan to do this by equipping every believer to have a heart for the lost, value the lost, make time for the lost and be a contagious Christian actively leading their world to Christ.
Every Campus: We believe that the future leaders of our nation are on campus right now! We therefore desire to have a cmapus ministry on every campus in our city and a large, on fire campus ministry team that is trained and provided for
Every Nation: In partnership with our every nation family we desire to raise up church leaders and teams who will start new congregations in our city or even in other nations (esp in every nation in Africa) that will be built on our values and reach, disciple and impact their community.
Disciple. “We are a disciple-making family”
Jesus commanded us to go and 'make disciples of all nations.' We therefore desire to have many connect groups meeting all over the city where believers can gather to grow in their faith. We desire every member whether young or old to be established in God's love, the foundations of the faith, be walking in freedom, faith and authentic spiritual family, being fruitful in good works, serving in teams and ministries and fulfilling the great commission wherever they find themselves.
Impact. “We are a nation building church”
We believe our mandate is to not only bring revival, but reformation too! We therefore desire to have or support many teams /ministries/organisations that are able to mobilize and organize our members into acts of service, compassion and justice so that the poor, the widows, the orphans, the prostitutes, the prisoners, the destitute, the sick, the students and the refugees in our city are shown the love of God
Our Vision: To honour God and advance His kingdom by being a healthy church that starts healthy churches.
Our Values:
Christ-centered: Jesus is the focus and head of our church
Bible-believing: We believe that the Bible is the inspired word of God and therefore the final authority on all matters of life
Spirit-empowered: We believe that the Holy Spirit empowers us to live as a witness for God in our generation
Disciple Making: Jesus said; "Go and make disciples of all nations…” (Mat 28) and that is what we want to do!
Socially responsible: Jesus has commissioned us to be salt and light to this world and so we believe in taking responsibility for our society in whatever way we can
