The singer’s widow Talinda Bennington launched the 320 Changes Direction initiative shortly afterwards to support those with mental health issues & to break down the stigma attached lớn depression & addiction. A festival focused on bringing awareness to lớn mental health issues followed in 2020.


Chester Bennington’s 17-year-old son Tyler Lee has also used his TikTok page khổng lồ raise awareness about depression & to advocate for mental health.

Last month he said he’d be using his page more & shared a tribute to Chester on what would have been his 47th birthday. The post said “mental health is just as important as anything else” alongside the hashtags “fuck depression”, “make Chester proud” and “suicide prevention awareness”.

However, one person commented with the claim “your dad didn’t kill himself” before adding “he was doing good in this world and they didn’t like .”

He went on to say that “there’s no evidence khổng lồ any of these theories that have been made. These are all just vain attempts to lớn sensationalise & make what really is a tragedy, a big story.”

“Get a life, man,” Tyler added.
