Social support is the physical and emotional comfort given to us by our family, friends, co-workers and others. It’s knowing that we are part of a community of people who love and care for us, and value and think well of us.
- Are there people in your life you can turn to when you just need someone to talk to?
- Someone to help when your basement is flooded or you need someone to watch the kids?
- Or maybe just someone you can call when something really great happens and you want to share the news?
