Abstract

A quantitative survey was conducted to investigate the perceived rehabilitation needs based on people with schizophrenia and their caregivers. A total of 194 persons with schizophrenia and 83 caregivers were recruited by convenience sampling to complete the two newly developed questionnaires for this purpose which included the Perceived Rehabilitation Needs Questionnaire for People with Schizophrenia and the Perceived Rehabilitation Needs Questionnaire for Caregivers towards People with Schizophrenia respectively. The findings deepened the understanding of this area. Some policy and service development suggestions for mental health strategies in Hong Kong and the Asian-Pacific region were made.
