It is always refreshing to revisit an old concept and redefine it in light of modern psychological and cultural changes. Perhaps, we can describe social support as enjoying warm and secure bonding, living in a tight community, having a close circle of friends, being part of a family-oriented home, belonging to an intimate sphere of people, flourishing in an interactive environment, having daily input from significant others, relying on colleagues in time of need, and growing up in a warm culture... all of these, and more, are features portraying the rich aspects of social support. Although the styles, means, techniques, and manifestations change across time and location, the core nature, function, and value of meaningful support remain the same. The psychosocial literature is full of definitions, discussions, and illustrations of what it means to have nurturing relationships with tangible resources. Fundamentally, the concept of social support can be defined as an available help, a ready assistance, and a personal care from many sources and places, together sharing sustainable aid in different ways and forms, at different times and stages, and for different reasons and a variety of needs. Social support is rather a phenomenon that facilitates survival in time of crisis, connects a particular need with a corresponding resource, empowers function during difficulty, and increases resiliency in time of adversity. Therefore, the benefits of such a support are both in intervention and prevention to enable further mobility and enhance personal growth. This phenomenon draws from the gains of living in close community (bonding, intimacy, and sustenance) and the new emphasis of positive psychology (health, strength, and virtue)...... People’s background and cultural heritage actually determine, to a large extent, whether they reach out to others and share a high moment or a pleasant event as well as to seek assistance and care in a low moment or a negative hap- pening. Those who are not used to tight communal living may have a hard time requesting or receiving help. And if they do, they may not internalize the supportive care deeply enough in order for it to have a transformative and healing effect........ Mainly, the idea of “needing support” is connected with the human experience during struggle, loss, crisis, and distress. However, a genuine and “comprehensive support” is equally important during times of stability, accomplishment, contentment, and celebration. These landmarks and positive events become more meaningful and even richer when shared, because as human beings we are inherently relational at the core. The benefits of connecting on deep levels are obvious and substantial....... Different groups, communities, and cultures manifest and utilize intimate support in different ways. Cultural mediators are major factors in shaping social support. Not only is there wisdom in multiple perspectives but also there is a capital of physical, emotional, and existential resources readily stored in every community. Such capital helps group-members in their belonging needs, identity formation, person-al growth, caregiving skills, and character maturation.
