Objectives This study examined basic psychological needs satisfaction (i.e. the need for autonomy, competence and relatedness) as a mediator between social support, responsibility and organizational procrastination among school counselors.
Methods A descriptive correlational study design was used. Using the census method, all the school counselors of Sabzevar were selected. The subjects completed the Vaux Social Support Appraisals Scale (SS-A), Tuckman Procrastination Scale (TPS), responsibility subscale of the California Personality Inventory (CPI) and the Basic Needs Satisfaction in Relationships Scale.
Results There is a statistically significant negative relationship between components of social support and organizational procrastination (P<0.05). Structural equation modeling analysis indicates that satisfaction of basic psychological needs mediates the relationship between social support and organizational procrastination (P<0.05). The mediator role of basic psychological needs satisfaction in the relationship between responsibility and organizational procrastination was not confirmed. 
Conclusion Basic psychological needs satisfaction play a significant mediating role in the relationship between social support and organizational procrastination of the school counselors.
