Metta World Peace

Metta World Peace is staying put with the Los Angeles Lakers.

The veteran small forward formerly known as Ron Artest will finish the final year of his contract, worth a reported $7.7 million dollars.

World Peace came to the Lakers as a free agent in 2009 and was a key part of their championship team that season.

But that’s not the only news Metta is making these days. He’s also talking this week about mental health, and – particularly – his personal struggles and advocacy on behalf of the cause, as part of a conference on social work and mental health at USC.

He spoke with KCRW’s Steve Chiotakis about his mental health advocacy.
