Paper is theoretically grounded in the model of social support. The aim of presented research is to gain insight in the perceived level of social support for people in hospital conditions due to the diagnostic criteria and forms of treatment. The proposed model is a multi-source support model. The sample of the study consists of 51 participants who were enrolled in some form of treatment in the University Psychiatric Hospital Vrapče, since the beginning of February to the end of April 2017. Multidimensional Scale of Social Support (MSPSS), was used. The highest score of perceived support is experienced by significant others (M= 5.72). Interestingly, weakest result of the perceived support by participants was obtained on the subscale of support experienced by the family (M = 5). Negative significant was found between perceived social support and age; support is negatively related to age. Older participants rated a lower level of support than the younger ones (-279*, Pearson’s correlation coefficient). There are no differences or significant correlations in the perception of social support, gender and form of treatment of participants.
