Lead singer of Linkin Park dies at 41 - July 21st 2017, 12:06 AM

Chester Bennington is dead, he killed himself at the age of 41. May he rest in peace.
Linkin Park was my absolute favourite band when I was a teen. Their music helped me through the toughest times I could ever imagine, still do. It absolutely breaks my heart. Chester lived a long life dealing with mental health issues and substance abuse. His death brings awareness to suicide and substance abuse.
If you're struggling with anything, please call the National Suicide Hotline 1-800-273-8255 or any other numbers available in your country.
RIP Chester Bennington

This honestly makes me so sad. I loved Linkin Park. Their music helped me through some really really tough times. This also makes me sad because he's been dealing with depression and suicidal thoughts since he was young (I heard somewhere that he had been dealing with it since childhood). He finally lost his battle with mental illness and it scares the crap out of me that one day the same thing will happen to me.

This also shows that mental illness does not discriminate. He was quite wealthy and probably didn't have to worry about some of the stresses that less wealthy people have to deal with. Yet, he had some type of mental illness that made his life unbearable. It just goes to show that no matter how "well off" a person might be they can and still do struggle with this illness. That's why it's so harmful when people make comments like "You have a roof over your head and you have a cell phone" what do you have to be sad about. Instead of helping the person it just isolates them and creates stigma.

Apparently he left behind six children as well. I hope that they will get the proper help to cope with all of this such as grief counseling and maybe individual therapy to deal with any issues that this suicide might end up causing.

I'm not a massive linkin park fan but I've listened to bits and pieces for years so I was really sad to see this news. Too many people see suicide as their only option.
RIP.

We used to listen to Linkin Park a lot when we were younger, and could relate to the music as we grew older. I'm really, really sad to hear he's dead.

I'm sorry to hear that this has happened, it's unfortunate that people feel as if suicide is their only option. If only more people reached out and those around those struggling with mental health issues were more in tune with the struggles their loved ones go through. May he rest in peace, wherever his soul reside now.

I remember listening to their CD's on my little portable CD player on the way to various places in the car. I loved their stuff even though I was pretty young at the time. I'm really saddened by this loss, and my heart aches for him and his family and all those he touched.

I am really sad about this. He had a hard life and there is so much stigma about getting help and then even more stigma about suicide. It's horrible he had to go through so much pain. I am keeping his family in my thoughts
