My mom, dad and two sisters are my support system. I can discuss any problems I'm having with them.

Does "my support system" in the above equate "my supports?" If not, what does it refer to exactly? Thanks.

I suppose it does, but i don't think "my supports" is something we'd usually say. "My support system" just means the people you turn to for help/advice.

Thanks, Tidus.

Then, what does "system" refer to in the phrase "my support system?"

Hi,

It just came to mind if it's the same to say "my support network."
