Linkin Park have paid tribute to Chester Bennington on the first
anniversary of his passing.

The "Numb" rockers - comprised of Mike Shinoda, Joe Hahn, Dave

Farrell, Rob Bourdon, and Brad Delson - wrote a touching tribute to
their late band mate Chester on Instagram on Friday (20.07.18), to
mark a year since the singer tragically took his own life at the age
of 41.

The messages comes after Chester's widow Talinda Bennington launched a
new mental health campaign on what would have been his 42nd birthday
in May this year.

She wrote: "Thank you for your time and attention to this request.

"To honour Chester's birthday, I have decided that 320 Changes
Direction will do a call to action via social media. I'm asking you to
promise to learn the Five Signs of Emotional Suffering and the Healthy
Habits of Emotional Well-being."

The Campaign to Change Direction refers to the healthy habits of

emotional wellbeing (take care, check in, engage, relax and know), the
latter of which refers to the signs that someone could need help -
personality change, agitated, withdrawal, poor self-care and
hopelessness.
