Wednesday, White announced Anxious Mind's Inc., a non-profit organization which he started while attending college at Iowa State, will be partnering with Bee Busy Wellness Center to create the Royce White Institute of Mental Health.
The 17,000-square foot facility, which will offer free mental healthcare along with dental and primary care, is scheduled to open on the southwest side of Houston in January 2014.
"When I met Royce White a couple of years ago, I knew we would do something like this," Bee Busy CEO Normal Mitchell told the Houston Chronicle. "I think it will be a great thing for this community."
White's struggles with anxiety are well documented from his one season in Houston after the young point guard and the Rockets found themselves in a dispute over agreements he wanted in place related to his disorder while playing in the NBA Development League.
