Intensive case management provided at the critical period following the onset of schizophrenia is crucial for early social and vocational recovery. We report the young schizophrenia patient who had been treated for 2 years but frequently relapsed and attempted suicide. After receiving cognitive behavioral case management from community mental health center, she has functionally recovered without recurrence for 4 years. Collaboration between psychiatrists of hospital and case manager of community mental health center was very important factor that contributed to her functional recovery. Cognitive behavioral case management promoting coping skills and reducing perceived stress was effective on successful social adaptation even during the stressful situations. In conclusion, psychosocial management including cognitive behavioral case management at the early stage of schizophrenia is crucial to prevent the relapse and to recover patients' function.
