Population of the study were students from the school of arts and social sciences. A sample of I60 students (83 males and 77 females) were purposely selected for the study. Test- retest reliability co-efficient 0.81 was established for the instrument- using Pearson product moment correlation. A descriptive survey research design was adopted and data collected were analyzed using descriptive statistics of frequencies and simple percentages. Results from the study indicated that majority of the students received psycho-social support from their families and a small proportion received from friends. Additionally, the students are satisfied with the psycho-social support they received from their families and the support they received has been helpful.
