This study evaluated the effectiveness of a series of seven psychosocial programmes in promoting holistic well-being of students in late adolescence. The psychosocial programme was held on two days, with two 3-hour sessions (morning and afternoon) scheduled for each day. Based on the body-mind-spirit model, the psychosocial programme involved bodily exercises, meditation, relaxation, singing, drawing, letter writing, sharing of experience, etc. As compared with the comparison group (N = 64), participants (N = 98) showed enhancement of equanimity in terms of nonattachment, general vitality, mindful awareness, and spiritual self-care. They also exhibited reduction in emotional affliction, declined emotional vulnerability, reduced bodily irritability, and lowered spiritual disorientation.
