Yale University Press

This chapter presents a broader theoretical framework for how social support influences physical health. It specifies the pathways responsible for the links between social support and health by integrating existing models with morbidity and mortality studies. It also discusses the retuned stress-related and direct effect models. These models can be used as conceptual guides for future research relevant to social support.

Keywords:   social support, physical health, morbidity, mortality, stress-related models, direct effect models
