Aim: The assessment of social support system for mentally ill people, participating in a local rehabilitation programme in the Targowek district of Warsaw. Method: The sample consists of 92 participants with serious mental illnesses. Bizon's Social Support Inventory and Social Support Map were used.

Therapists from community rehabilitation services are the biggest group of people included in the individual network of social support. Lack of emotional support is observed.
