Royce White, Elite Athlete and Mental Health Advocate

Royce White was a standout basketball player at Iowa State, where he was the Big 12 Newcomer of the Year for the 2011-2012 season. He played professional basketball in the NBA and the Canadian NBL, where was a two-time all-Canada NBL first team selection and the 2018 NBL scoring champion. He’s now making his mark as a mixed martial artist.

He also suffers from sometimes crippling anxiety which derailed his NBA career. He’s become a leading advocate for mental health parity and workplace protections for those with mental illness. He joined Alyssa Milano for a frank and compelling conversation about living, working, and excelling with mental illness.
