Royce White might be the basketball property of the 76ers, but he’s still trying to put down roots in the city of Houston. The Houston Chronicle is reporting that White, who suffers from an anxiety disorder, is going to open up a mental health center in the city. On Wednesday morning, White announced a partnership with his non-profit organization Anxious Mind’s Inc. and Bee Busy Wellness Center to create the Royce White Institute of Mental Health on the city’s southwest side. The Wellness Center, which is a 17,000-square foot facility that will also have dental and primary care, is located at 6640 W. Bellfort and will open in January 2014. “When I met Royce White a couple of years ago, I knew we would do something special like this,” Bee Busy CEO Normal Mitchell said. “I think it will be a great thing for this community.” White said that he thinks every city should have a center where free mental healthcare is offered, and is ready to start his career with the 76ers. “I was traded to Philadelphia and that’s where my career is taking me next so we’ll see what happens,” White said. “I am hoping I will be able to go there and produce.”
