Bee BusyLast month, the District K council office recognized the work and collaboration of the Bee Busy Wellness Center and The Royce White Institute of Mental Health Center at a ribbon cutting ceremony of the Bee Busy Wellness Center’s new 8,640 square foot flagship facility (the former Randall’s) – 8785 West Bellfort Ave.

The Bee Busy Wellness Center is a non-profit organization that offers mental and dental health care services to medically underserved individuals in southwest Houston. This year, the Wellness Center has expanded its outreach services to team-up with NBA player Royce White and his non-profit organization – Anxious Mind’s, Inc. The Royce White Institute of Mental Health will be housed within the Bee Busy Wellness Center and will be the first comprehensive behavioral health center targeting the underserved communities of Houston.

NBA player Royce White turned the national spotlight on mental health as he experienced challenges with his own illness that affected his own professional basketball career.

“I want to commend Royce White for teaming-up with the Bee Busy Wellness Center. This facility will be a welcome addition to the Brays Oaks District,” states Council Member Green.
