Aims: Social health is the part of a person's health that emerges in the community. We consider a person to have social health who can express his/her social activities and roles normally and feel connected to society and social norms. This study was aimed to determine a relationship between social support and social health among the people of Yasouj, Iran.
Instrument & Methods: This descriptive study was a cross-sectional survey conducted on people of Yasuj in 2016. Four hundred people were selected using the cluster sampling method. A standardized questionnaire for the social support variables was used. The information was coded and entered into SPSS 22 software. Kendall's tau-c test was used to analyze the relationships between variables.
Findings: There were significant relationships between social health and social, family, friends, and others' support (p<0.05).
Conclusion: Social support (family, friends, and others) can help increase the social health of individuals, and it can reduce social harm.
