Objective: This study intended to evaluate the relationship between social support and emotional status among patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Method: The study used a cross-sectional method with a consecutive sampling technique at three public hospitals in DKI Jakarta. Data from 200 samples were processed using Chi-Square statistical tests. Data were obtained through questionnaires. Result: The results of the analysis of the relationship between social support and emotional status in COPD patients showed that there was no relationship between social support with emotional status (depression) (p = 0.921), emotional status (anxiety) (p = 0.184), and emotional status (stress) (p = 0.795). Conclusion: Many factors affected emotional status in COPD patients. This study has not been able to prove the relationship between social support and emotional status among patients with COPD.
