In the short clip, 15-year-old Draven says, I want to make a commitment that I will talk to someone before I hurt myself, when I m feeling depressed or sad or going through a hard week or month or year, says Bennington s son. And I want to challenge you to do the same, to help yourself, not hurt yourself. Watch it below.
National Suicide Prevention Week takes place from September 10-16.
The likes of Dave Grohl and Slipknot s Clown have spoken out to warn to people to be more aware and understanding of depression in the wake of Bennington s death, and now his widow Talinda has done the same.
Sharing a recent photo of a family holiday, she wrote: This was days before my husband took his own life. Suicidal thoughts were there, but you d never know. #fuckdepression .
