An original conceptual model of social and psychological support for war victims has been developed. Support is defined as a specially organized activity that provides psychological health recovery and constructive personal transformations. The interrelation of components of the horizontal model of social-psychological support is considered: 1) the recipient, that is, the consumer; 2) the agent, that is, the specialist, the group, the community; 3) a life situation that promotes or impedes the interaction of the recipient and the agent. The dynamic, vertical model of support is built with the following components in mind: diagnostic-target, operational-instrumental, community-communicative and evaluation-corrective. The functions of the components were determined: diagnostic- target (assessment of the nature of the trauma, the state of the recipient's psychological health, recovery resources); operational-instrumental (approbation of tools, methods, strategies of support); community-communicative (involvement of real and virtual networks, self-help groups); evaluative-corrective (monitoring the effectiveness of support, adjusting the procedure, making changes to the organization). The support tools were clarified: a) communicative practices to improve the interaction of the agent and the recipient; b) multidisciplinary measures to ensure the readiness of communities to provide support, attract the recipient to community life; c) facilitation of self and mutual assistance. Performance indicators for the support are calculated: 1) form of psychological readiness before constructive interaction, 2) step of satisfaction with the choice of training, 3) improvement of the psychological well-being of the recipient, 4) professional training of support agents and burnout prevention 5) the growing popularity of support; 6) the work coordination of the multidisciplinary teams, 7) the community possibility to provide accompanying interaction on its own after completion of the program developed by specialists.
