The purpose

Evaluating the impact of probation on probationers is necessary for both effective practice of probation officers and their assessment of the success of their work. At present, there are limited studies that have evaluated the impact of probation services on probationers and their family. There are even fewer studies that have examined interventions on probationers' well-being and family relations in a Chinese society. Compared with the general population, probationers are associated with poorer mental (e.g., depression, lower levels of self-esteem, high level of stress) and physical health, and often experience higher levels of family conflict, and poorer quality of family relationships. Given the vulnerabilities, there is a need to strengthen and promote healthy lifestyle and enhance individual and family well-being among probationers. As part of the FAMILY project, the current study focuses on "FAMILY Holistic Health" which emphasizes a comprehensive approach to improving physical, mental, and social health and well-being. This project will be conducted as a pilot project in the Social Welfare Department (SWD) in the Eastern District of Hong Kong. Interventions will be delivered to promote and enhance probationer's wellbeing, as well as enhancing FAMILY 3Hs (Happiness, Health, and Harmony). Training programs will be provided to probation officers and/or workers of SWD in order to equip them with knowledge and skills in implementing health-related family intervention programs.
