"We have a chance here, myself and the Rockets, to not only right this situation, but to just grow together," White said. "We're talking about writing an addendum that addresses mental illness in a specific way, which you have to do, because as much as mental illness is a health issue, it's a very individualistic health issue.
"I know they want to learn about this. I think that's what people are missing here. This isn't a me versus them thing. This isn't us being at-odds thing. This is them being in a new, very unique situation. Them not being totally familiar with the situation has very health-related symptoms for me.
"It's not about the Rockets being blamed. The Rockets have tried to support me, but knowing how to support, is just as important as trying."
White confirmed an ESPN report that he will meet with Rockets general manager Daryl Morey on Monday to discuss his situation.
However, he said that meeting will not produce immediate results.
"It can't be that fast," White said. "We have to do it justice. There's no quick fix for mental health issues, because it's a gray area. It may take more time, but taking more time is the right thing to do.
"The Rockets have been great in saying 'we understand that we don't know a lot here.' The Rockets asked me 'what can we do better or how can we support you?' I've been writing some ideas based on what I know about mental illness and what I know about myself of trying to create a nice, sound protocal to add in there. I'm making great progress."
White said Monday's meeting will help lay the foundation for producing the protocol that will help get him in his comfort zone.
