Chester Bennington’s widow launches mental health awareness campaign to mark singer’s birthday

Linkin Park frontman passed away in July 2017

Chester Bennington‘s wife has called on fans to mark the late Linkin Park frontman’s upcoming birthday by taking part in a mental health awareness campaign.

The singer’s widow Talinda Bennington launched the 320 Changes Direction initiative after her husband’s death in July 2017. It helps support those with mental health issues and attempts to break down the stigma attached to depression and addiction problems.

Bennington would have turned 42 on March 20, 2018. Talinda has asked fans to mark his birthday later this month by sharing a photo of themselves with the words “I AM THE CHANGE” written on their hand.

“Change begins within ourselves,” Talinda writes. See her tweet below.

The Linkin Park frontman was found dead at his California home on July 20, 2017. His death was later ruled as suicide by a coroner. He was 41.

In December, it was revealed that Bennington’s entire estate had been left to Talinda Bennington and his six children.

Bennington’s ex-wife Samantha Olit later filed a claim for alleged owed child support and royalties.
