In occupational stress research, the mediating functions of peer support, manager support, and family support have not been adequately studied to determine their likely intervening impacts. Based on the JCDS theory, the present research examines a model to assess the relevance of these components in occupational stress and its antecedents (Job demand, Job control, and role clarity). Responses from an online survey of 441 academic faculty members from various Indian higher educational institutions suggest that Family support mediated Job demand, Job control, role clarity, and their potential influence on Occupational stress is significant. The relationship between Occupational stress and its antecedents (Job demand, Job control, and Role clarity) mediated by Peer support has also had a significant impact on managing occupational stress. At the same time, the association between Occupational Stress and Manager Support did not significantly mediate its Antecedents. The importance of lowering the harmful effect of occupational stress in the academic institution context was explored. The findings and their theory and practice implications and future study techniques to better our understanding of occupational stress are discussed further.
