Outpatient Mental Health Services


Provided at our outpatient clinics throughout Harris County, our treatment teams create service plans that are uniquely designed to meet the needs of each person based on diagnoses, symptoms and functioning levels.

Mental illness such as depression, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, post-traumatic stress, anxiety and obsessive compulsive disorders can be debilitating for individuals and their loved ones. At The Harris Center, we have an inherent passion for helping our clients live to their fullest potential. This is why we work with individuals and their families to create service plans that are specially designed to meet the needs of each person.
