Confidentiality is also important in gaining the young person’s trust
as the clinician tries to build rapport with him/her. It is known that pre-
ventable behaviours such as unintentional injury, drug and alcohol misuse,
and unsafe sexual activity as well as mental health problems contribute
significantly to the burden of disease in adolescence. Clinicians are
encouraged to opportunistically screen for risk behaviours and emotional
distress in order to identify risk and intervene early. Confidentiality is
essential for accurately obtaining sensitive information from the young
person and the clinician’s assurances of confidentiality encourage the
young person to be honest in disclosing sensitive information as well as
returning for follow-up

Dear Dr. Mel, may I know more about the nature of CSO service in HK? I wonder who will help offenders to reintegrate into the community.

Hi, I realized that it seems the concept “outcome” is different from the term “output”. Taking the grandparent training project as an example, what is the “outcome’ referable?
