    Sorry, but no! I'm not even sure what it means. Perhaps:

    She needs people to depend on her as much as she depends on them.

    She needs someone to depend on her as much as she depends on someone [else].

    She needs as many people to depend on her as she depends on others.

    She needs as many people as she depends on, to depend on her.

    All of those are possibilities, but I don't even know if 1) she currently depends on one person 2) she currently depends on many people 3) she wants many people to depend on her 4) she really wants one person to depend on her.
