Continuity of Care: Finding Off-Campus Resources 

 Although Houston is a large city with numerous, excellent medical resources, waiting lists are not unusual for psychiatrists. Students who enter Rice with a mental health concern that requires on-going care should make arrangements before the start of the school year to locate Houston mental health professionals who can provide that continuity of care. Rice Counseling Center staff can assist you with that process, if you wish.  

 It is the policy of the Counseling Center that our psychiatric services are adjunctive to the counseling and psychotherapy services provided by the staff counselors. Anyone needing psychiatric services and who is not engaged in therapy at the Rice Counseling Center is referred off-campus for these services.
