Abstract: This paper reports the development and validation of the Wuxi version of the Rehabilitation Needs Questionnaire for Caregivers of People with Schizophrenia (PRNQ-C-WX) based on the original Hong Kong version (PRNQ-C-HK). PRNQ-C-WX was validated by exploratory factor analysis (EFA) using a convenience sample consisting of 200 caregivers of people with schizophrenia. EFA yielded an eight-factor solution accounting for 63.8 % of the total variance which resulted in a 50-item PRNQ-C-WX. The questionnaire has excellent internal consistencies. Its factor structure is similar to the Hong Kong version. Some suggestions for policy, service and research development in mental health in mainland China are made.
