What is Social Support?

Social support refers to the assistance, care, and comfort that individuals receive from their social networks, such as family, friends, colleagues, and communities. It encompasses emotional, informational, and instrumental support provided by others in times of need, stress, or crisis.

Social support plays a crucial role in promoting mental and physical health, reducing stress, and enhancing resilience. It provides a buffer against adversity, boosts self-esteem, and fosters a sense of belonging.

Strong social support networks are associated with improved coping abilities, lower rates of depression and anxiety, and better overall well-being. An individual with social support exhibits:

  • Close and supportive relationships for spending quality time together
  • A strong network of friends who offer listening without judgment
  • A supportive partner or spouse, to share inner thoughts, and feelings
  • Professional network or mentorship program, to receive guidance, advice, and career-related support
  • Participation in support groups for a particular interest, hobby, or health condition
