The Beach Boys founder teams up with the Campaign to Change Direction to help raise awareness in the US of mental health issues
Brian Wilson has partnered with the Campaign to Change Direction, an initiative that aims to change the culture surrounding mental health awareness in the US. The founding Beach Boys member is due to perform a benefit concert and work on getting Americans to recognise the signs that someone they know may be suffering from mental health problems.
“My wife, Melinda, and I are very excited to be a part of this important campaign, not only to bring awareness to the mental health issues faced by millions of Americans, but also to encourage everyone to learn the five signs of emotional suffering,” Wilson said in a statement. “It’s time for us to bring the conversation of mental health in America out of the shadows, and the Campaign to Change Direction is leading the way.”
