Implementing a Culture of Health among Delaware's Probation Population

Implementing a Culture of Health among Delaware's Probation Population

This study investigates the process and impact of the implementation of a multi-agency “Culture of Health” team in the Delaware Department of Probation, which aims to address the health, substance abuse, mental illness, education, transportation, employment, and housing issues faced by those individuals under probationary supervision in Delaware. Using a pragmatic randomized controlled trial, this study will test the efficacy of using the team approach to leverage different financing systems and service coordination by providing education, screening, testing and referral with follow-up services.
