Social Support

Social support is the help provided by other people, such as family, friends, groups, and communities. The forms of assistance that are given through social support come in many forms, and have a significant impact on a person’s well-being. Benefits of social support include improved physical health, greater resilience to stress, a feeling of security, and more.

The Social Support worksheet will help your clients learn about, and explore, their social support system. The psychoeducation portion of the printout explains the benefits of social support, types of support, and ways to build social support. The applied portion of the activity will guide your clients to explore their own support system with questions about barriers, how supports could be used to deal with current problems, and more.
