A case of schizophrenia was admitted to psychiatric acute period ward due to poor understanding of the disease and compliance with taking medication. It was discovered during intervention that ceramics was a meaningful occupation prior to the onset of the illness. Awareness of schizophrenia, compliance with taking medication and recognition of the importance maintaining health improved by continuing ceramics. Thus, focusing on ‘healthy parts' which center on the subject engaging in meaningful occupations is in line with the ‘recovery model' and ‘strength model', making it important in the acute phase of occupational therapy for patients with schizophrenia.
