"Social support is important to many people interested in physical (e.g., mortality) and mental health (e.g., depression). As a result, there have been over 45,000 articles, chapters, and books published on social support across a wide range of disciplines including psychology, medicine, sociology, nursing, public health, and social work. There are three distinct sub-types of social support, and each has different links to health: A support recipient's perception of social support, the specific supportive actions received, and the extent to which a person is integrated within a social network. In addition, there are three main types of causes of social support: the personality of the support recipient, the objectively supportive aspects of support providers, as well as the relationships between specific support recipients and providers. A variety of theories of social support have been proposed. For example, one theory describes how social support helps people cope with stressful events. Another theory describes how social support maintains well being in the absence of stress. A third theory describes how social support becomes part of an adaptive personality profile throughout a person's life."
