Continuity of Care: Finding Off-Campus Resources
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.
