Communication and Social Support

Social support is central to an individual’s physical and mental health and well-being.

 

Surround yourself with energetic, health, happy people and you’re more likely to mirror their attitudes.

 

Your social support circle needn’t consist solely of people you see in the flesh. In an increasingly digital world, strong social support systems are being forged online and via mobile apps, offering four common functions:

 

  • Emotional support
  • Informational support
  • Tangible support
  • Companionship support
