Since his death, Bennington's family  he is survived by six children and a wife  has been outspoken on the subject of suicide.

I want to make a commitment that I will talk to someone before I hurt myself when I'm feeling depressed, sad or going through a hard week, month or year. I want to challenge you to do the same  to help yourself, not hurt yourself."

On Monday, Bennington's wife, Talinda, posted a video from 36 hours before Chester's suicide showing him laughing and joking around with his family. She tweeted alongside the video, "This is what depression looked like to us just 36 hrs b4 his death. He loved us SO much & we loved him."
