Are they necessary?

A support system is the fabric (family, friends, or community resources) that binds individuals together for the purpose of sharing and receiving assistance.

Networks of personal and professional contacts are important to individuals, as they provide practical and moral support when needed.

Training in building your supportive network will allow you to select people who are sympathetic and nonjudgmental. RDS will assist you with deciding if formal verses informal support systems will be beneficial or harmful for your needs.

At RDS, we help you identify how humans are relational and are designed for social interactions. We help you look, explore, and process how increasing your involvement leads to growth in personal and community activities.

RDS collaborates with you in planting the seeds for improved socialization with others.
