Chester Bennington’s Widow Opening Up About Suicide At Tribute Will Melt Your Heart


Chester Bennington’s widow Talinda gave a speech at Linkin Park’s tribute concert at the Hollywood Bowl. She thanked her ‘brothers’ in Linkin Park, and her ‘sisters,’ the band wives. She also discussed #FuckDepression and #MakeChesterProud.

“It is time we recognize that mental health is as important as our physical health. It is my mission to make it easier to have access to mental health resources. I am proud to join Give An Hour and the Campaign to Change Direction.

Together, we will build a resource, not only for those suffering emotionally, but also for friends and family members, and medical practitioners who are seeking answers to questions about mental health, illness, and addiction, so that they can best support the people in their lives. Chester’s birthday was March 20th. In celebration of his life, the resource will be called 320.”
