The study was designed to investigate the relationship between anxiety and social support systems. University students (N = 145) were given two questionnaires. On the first questionnaire the students were required to respond to questions assessing their anxiety levels. On the second questionnaire the students were required to respond to questions assessing the levels of social support which they may have or perceive that they can access if and when they need it. A descriptive analysis of the data was made and significant negative correlation was found to exist between levels of social support and anxiety. Thus, it is important for social workers to assist clients to develop and enhance their social supports systems to help him/her combat the problem of anxiety.
