Social Support: What It Is And Isn’t

  • Social support is a network of family, friends, colleagues, and other acquaintances you can turn to, whether in times of crisis or simply for fun and entertainment
  • Social support is not the same as a support group
  • Support groups are generally more structured meetings or self-help groups led by health professionals or “peers”
