Introduction: The aims of this paper is to present the Spanish version of the Social Network Questionnaire -SNQ-and its reliability that has been analysed on a sample of people with severe mental illness in Andalusia (Spain). Method: The questionnaire was translated into Spanish and its inter-rate and test-retest agreement were assessed in a sample of 30 subjects, residents in different sheltered homes. Afterwards, the internal consistency was assessed using the answerers of 225 subjects of similar characteristics. For the statistical analysis Intraclass and Cronbach coefficients were used. Results: Inter-rate agreement: Intraclass from 0.716 to 1.000; Test-retest agreement: Intraclass from 0.412 to 1.000; Internal Consistency: Alfa=0.723. Conclusion: The Spanish version of the SNQ (CURES) is an assessment instrument with reasonable reliability to assess the social network of people with severe mental illness in residential facilities.
