Abstract: The aim of the work is to evaluate stress causing factors and their links to social support and subjective health. The investigation pool consisted of medical personnel working in Ambulance station (AS) in Kaunas and Kaunas district, and physicians working in Kaunas Primary Health Care Centres (PHCC). 105 medical personnel took part in this investigation: 50 Ambulance medical personnel, and 55 Primary Health Care Center medical staff (40 general practitioners, 48 Ambulance specialists and 17 nurses). The methods of investigation were as follows: experienced stress level was assessed using the Reeder stress scale. In order to evaluate social support, Social Support Questionnare and Duke Social Support Questionnaire were used. The investigation showed that there was not any diference between AS and PHCC medical personnel stress levels. The stress level of AS medical personnel was related to specific and characteristic features of their work. The conclusion was that social and, especially, emotional support decreases stress level of medical staff. Medical personnel often receive emotional and social support from the members of their family. Stress levels of medical personnel were related to their social network: bigger social network associated with lower stress levels. Social network was also related to better subjective health among Ambulance specialists
