Brian Wilson partners with mental health organisation to raise money for charity

Brian Wilson's lifelong struggle with mental health has led to his recent partnership agreement with The Campaign to Change Direction to help others facing similar issues. 
 
The Beach Boys co-founder will be to play a November concert in Virginia, which will raise funds for Give An Hour, a non-profit that provides free mental health services to veterans.  
 
 
"The Change Direction Campaign is not about changing stigmas, but about bringing awareness and clarity to the five key signs of mental health suffering,"  Wilson said in a statement.
 
"I was blessed to have the love of my life and partner Melinda support me through a very difficult time of my life. Not all people are lucky enough to have a Melinda and be surrounded by people that know the signs of mental illness. That's why the Change Direction campaign is so important."
