The purpose of this study was to elucidate the roles of community health promotion activities by investigating the change in the health promotion behavior and the growth of psychological aspects (self-esteem, self-efficacy, self-actualization) of members who participated in the health promotion activities of F-city in Japan. The study consisted of two components. In the first component, qualitative data were collected from semi-constructive interviews that were conducted on 16 members. In the second component, quantitative data were collected from a questionnaire that had been distributed to 356 members. The questionaire asked questions about the degree of satisfaction that the member felt from performing the activities ; changes in the member's health promotion behavior ; and the degree of improvement in the growth of psychological aspects. The questionnaire was also distributed to 150 adults who did not members in the health promotion activities of F-city.
The results were as follows
1. The members gained personal benefits in 5 different fields. (1) the members became interested in health-related matters ; (2) they acquired healthy behaviors ; (3) they gained many new friends ; (4) they had many acquaintances ; and (5) they were highly regarded by others.
2. The mean age of the 356 subjects was 56.2years. Comparison of the degree of satisfaction from participating in the activities between the first-year and second-year members, showed that the second-year members felt higher self-efficacy than the first-year members. Further analyses showed that the subjects who had been volunteering for 1-2 years felt satisfaction from simply participating in such activities, while those who had been volunteering for more than 7years felt satisfaction from participating in planning the content of the volunteer activities.
3. Comparison of the degree of self-efficacy that was felt between the first-year and the second-year members, showed that the second-year members felt higher self-efficacy than the first-year members. Those who felt higher self-efficacy tended to be more concerned about the health care of the people in the region.
