March 20th marks what would have been Chester Bennington’s 42nd Birthday.
In honor of Chester, his widow decided to remember in a way that would bring awareness and aid in suicide prevention. Talinda has asked fans to follow her in writing “I am the change” on the palm of their hands.
Five fingers represent the five signs of emotional distress – personality change, feeling agitated, withdrawal, poor self care, and a feeling of hopelessness. It also represents the five habits of emotional well being – take care, check in, engage, relax and know the five signs.
Fans of Linkin Park and suicide awareness advocates have been posting their selfies on social media throughout the day.
Remember, if you or a loved one is showing signs of emotional distress, call the suicide prevention hotline 1-800-273-8255.
