SANCHEZ-ARANA MORENO, Tomás; DE LA HIGUERA ROMERO, Jesús; SANZ CORTES, Sebastián  and  PEREZ PEREZ, Fermín. About a case of early psychosis: a new paradigm in mental health. Rev. Asoc. Esp. Neuropsiq. [online]. 2012, vol.32, n.114, pp.323-326. ISSN 2340-2733.

Early intervention in the early phases of psychosis has become increasingly relevant in recent years because of their potential clinical implications for the evolution of the disease. It is known that after a first psychotic episode is a "critical period" that extends to five years, this being a period of high vulnerability. Comprehensive and intensive approach during this period aims at optimizing the recovery process by helping the patient and his family rebuild their lives and prevent relapse. Below are the management of a case in a recent program of "early intervention in psychosis" implemented in our rehabilitation unit.
