Increasing the available social support can be an important strategy in reducing or preventing mental distress and warding off post-stroke depression. The role of family and people around them to provide life support for stroke sufferers will be very meaningful. The purpose of this study was to describe the attractiveness of the Family Social Support Module for Stroke Patients with Attention to Local Wisdom in Malang.
