Jean-Marc Dewaele and Aneta Pavlenko edited as special issue of the Journal of
Multilingual and Multicultural Development on 'Bilingualism and emotion' in
As I recall, most of the contributors were interested in the expression of
emotion in various languages rather than what you call "emotional support." (In
fact, I'm not sure I understand what you mean by that.) There may be articles of
interest to you there, though. There are articles in the volume about language
choice and switching codes.
The volume is Journal of Multilingual and Multicultural Development, Volume 25,
number 2&3, 2004.
