Chester Bennington's widow says that she was "completely surprised" by her husband's passing, explaining that she believed Chris Cornell's death only two months earlier would serve as a deterrent against suicide to the LINKIN PARK singer.

Chester was found dead on July 20, 2017 — on what would have been the 53rd birthday of his late friend and fellow rocker, SOUNDGARDEN frontman Chris Cornell.

After Cornell died in May 2017 as a result of suicide by hanging himself inside his Detroit hotel room, Chester wrote a letter thanking him for inspiring him and hoping he would find peace in "the next life."

On Wednesday (January 31), Talinda Bennington touched upon her tragic loss during an appearance at the Canadian Event Safety Summit, where she spoke with Anna Shinoda(wife of Mike Shinoda, who is also in LINKIN PARK) and Jim Digby (LINKIN PARK's production manager). The event focused on mental illness in the music industry, but much of the panel's discussion centered on life after Chester's death.

Talinda, who married Chester in 2005 and had three kids with the late singer, said (see video below): "[Chester and I] were both very emotionally unhealthy in our own different ways, and over our time together — we were together for 12 and a half years — we both grew. He struggled with addiction and depression, two things that I've never struggled with. Although I do have my own demons, I did have my hardships growing up, we just handled them in very different ways. So I came from a point of complete — for lack of a better term — ignorance to his situation. But over time, I came to learn that taking care of your mental health is as important as your physical health."

      All I ever wanted
      Secrets that you keep
      All you ever wanted
      The truth I couldn't speak
      'Cause I can't see forgiveness
      And you can't see the crime
      And we both keep on waiting
      For what we left behind
      The light on the horizon
      Was brighter yesterday
      Shadows floating over
      Skies begin to fade
      You said it was forever
      But then it slipped away
      Standing at the end of
      The final masquerade
      Final masquerade
      Standing at the end of the final masquerade
      The light on the horizon
      Was brighter yesterday
      Shadows floating over
      Skies begin to fade
      You said it was forever
      But then it slipped away
      Standing at the end of
      The final masquerade
      Standing at the end of
      The final masquerade
      Standing at the end of
      The final masquerade

      What is borderline personality disorder (BPD)?
      If you have borderline personality disorder (BPD), you probably feel like you’re on a rollercoaster—and not just because of your unstable emotions or relationships, but also the wavering sense of who you are. Your self-image, goals, and even your likes and dislikes may change frequently in ways that feel confusing and unclear.
      People with BPD tend to be extremely sensitive. Some describe it as like having an exposed nerve ending. Small things can trigger intense reactions. And once upset, you have trouble calming down. It’s easy to understand how this emotional volatility and inability to self-soothe leads to relationship turmoil and impulsive—even reckless—behavior. When you’re in the throes of overwhelming emotions, you’re unable to think straight or stay grounded. You may say hurtful things or act out in dangerous or inappropriate ways that make you feel guilty or ashamed afterwards. It’s a painful cycle that can feel impossible to escape. But it’s not.
      BPD is treatable
      In the past, many mental health professionals found it difficult to treat borderline personality disorder (BPD), so they came to the conclusion that there was little to be done. But we now know that BPD is treatable. In fact, the long-term prognosis for BPD is better than those for depression and bipolar disorder. However, it requires a specialized approach. The bottom line is that most people with BPD can and do get better—and they do so fairly rapidly with the right treatments and support.
      Healing is a matter of breaking the dysfunctional patterns of thinking, feeling, and behaving that are causing you distress. It’s not easy to change lifelong habits. Choosing to pause, reflect, and then act in new ways will feel unnatural and uncomfortable at first. But with time you’ll form new habits that help you maintain your emotional balance and stay in control.

      [Verse 1: Mike Shinoda]
      When you were standing in the wake of devastation
      When you were waiting on the edge of the unknown
      And with the cataclysm raining down
      Insides crying, "Save me now"
      You were there, impossibly alone

      [Chorus: Chester Bennington]
      Do you feel cold and lost in desperation?
      You build up hope, but failure's all you've known
      Remember all the sadness and frustration
      And let it go, let it go

      [Verse 2: Mike Shinoda]
      And in a burst of light that blinded every angel
      As if the sky had blown the heavens into stars
      You felt the gravity of tempered grace
      Falling into empty space
      No one there to catch you in their arms

      [Chorus: Chester Bennington & Mike Shinoda]
      Do you feel cold and lost in desperation?
      You build up hope, but failure’s all you’ve known
      Remember all the sadness and frustration
      And let it go, let it go

      [Bridge: Chester Bennington & Mike Shinoda]
      Do you feel cold and lost in desperation?
      You build up hope, but failure's all you've known
      Remember all the sadness and frustration
      And let it go

      Let it go
      Let it go
      Let it go
      Let it go

      [Chorus: Chester Bennington & Mike Shinoda]
      Do you feel cold and lost in desperation?
      You build up hope, but failure's all you've known
      Remember all the sadness and frustration
      And let it go, let it go

      [Verse 1]
      I close both locks below the window
      I close both blinds and turn away
      Sometimes solutions aren't so simple
      Sometimes goodbye's the only way

      [Chorus]
      And the sun will set for you
      The sun will set for you
      And the shadow of the day will embrace the world in grey
      And the sun will set for you

      [Verse 2]
      In cards and flowers on your window
      Your friends all plead for you to stay
      Sometimes beginnings aren't so simple
      Sometimes goodbye's the only way

      [Chorus]
      And the sun will set for you
      The sun will set for you
      And the shadow of the day will embrace the world in grey
      And the sun will set for you

      [Instrumental Bridge]

      [Chorus]
      And the shadow of the day will embrace the world in grey
      And the sun will set for you
      And the shadow of the day will embrace the world in grey
      And the sun will set for you

      [Chester Bennington:]
      I've lied to you
      The same way that I always do
      This is the last smile
      That I'll fake for the sake of being with you

      [Chester Bennington (Mike Shinoda):]
      (Everything falls apart
      Even the people who never frown
      Eventually break down)
      The sacrifice of hiding in a lie
      (Everything has to end
      You'll soon find we're out of time left
      To watch it all unwind)
      The sacrifice is never knowing

      [Chester Bennington:]
      Why I never walked away
      Why I played myself this way
      Now I see your testing me pushes me away
      Why I never walked away
      Why I played myself this way
      Now I see your testing me pushes me away

      I've tried like you
      To do everything you wanted to
      This is the last time
      I'll take the blame for the sake of being with you

      [Chester Bennington (Mike Shinoda):]
      (Everything falls apart
      Even the people who never frown

      Now I see your testing me pushes me away

      [Chester Bennington (Mike Shinoda):]
      (We're all out of time
      This is how we find how it all unwinds)
      The sacrifice of hiding in a lie
      (We're all out of time
      This is how we find how it all unwinds)
      The sacrifice is never knowing

      As more and more people discuss mental health issues in public forums, it seems to be lifting some of the stigma surrounding the topic. New research reveals that the number of students seeking help for mental health problems has risen considerably between 2009 and 2015.
      Anxiety, depression, and panic attacks are on the rise among U.S. college students, suggests a new study.
      Sara Oswalt, from the University of Texas at San Antonio, is the lead author of the new study, which was published in the Journal of American College Health.
      According to estimates that the scientists cite, around 26 percent of people aged 18 and above in the United States live with a mental health condition in any given year.

      As the one-year anniversary of Chester Bennington's death approaches, his widow Talinda has compiled a list of all official memorial services worldwide. "There are so many beautiful memorials planned all around the WORLD in honor of Chester," she wrote in a tweet. "I wanted to share them with you."
      She shared a link to a Google document that gives further context around the list and #LPMemorial2018. "The main purpose of this hashtag is to find the memorials specific to the one year of Chester’s passing, but also to simply separate upcoming events from the past ten months, as the hashtag took off beyond our expectations,"

      Nearly 80 genes that could be linked to depression have been discovered by scientists.
      The findings could help explain why some people may be at a higher risk of developing the condition, researchers say.
      The study could also help researchers develop drugs to tackle mental ill-health, experts say.
      Depression affects one in five people in the UK every year and is the leading cause of disability worldwide. Life events - such as trauma or stress - can contribute to its onset, but it is not clear why some people are more likely to develop the condition than others.
      Scientists led by the University of Edinburgh analysed data from UK Biobank - a research resource containing health and genetic information for half a million people.
      They scanned the genetic code of 300,000 people to identify areas of DNA that could be linked to depression.
      Some of the pinpointed genes are known to be involved in the function of synapses, tiny connectors that allow brain cells to communicate with each other through electrical and chemical signals.

      On July 20, 2017, the music world lost one of its most innovative artists in Chester Bennington. The singer and front man was best known for his work in the genre-bending rap-rock group Linkin Park, which rose to fame with its 2000 debut album Hybrid Theory. For almost 20 years, the singer, who died at 41, shared vocal duties with founding member and longtime friend Mike Shinoda. Just two months before BenningtonÂ’s death, the California rock stalwarts would release their seventh album, One More Light, and BenningtonÂ’s last.
      Over the past seven months, Shinoda has been figuring out how to heal following Bennington’s passing. Last October, Shinoda — along with the remaining members of Linkin Park — held a tribute concert in honor of Bennington where they performed a selection of career-spanning songs at the Hollywood Bowl with special guests including Blink-182, Korn’s Jonathan Davis, and Machine Gun Kelly. It was the first and only show they’ve played since Bennington’s death. In the time before and after the show, Shinoda has been reflecting, painting, and making his own music. At the top of the year, he released his Post Traumatic EP: a trio of songs that captured the darkness he felt as he processed losing his friend. In June, he’ll release his first solo album. In his own words, Shinoda tells Vulture about the grieving process, his solo project, and the future of Linkin Park.
      The past seven months have been a roller coaster. Even as a kid, whenever things were going on that were hard for me to deal with, I would always turn to art. I was always drawing and sketching in notebooks. In fact, my parents used to joke that if they gave me a pen and a pad at dinner, they could literally sit and have a meal with their friends for as long as they wanted. It’s been cathartic — one of the things that’s helped me navigate what has happened.

      Summary:
      Therapy dog sessions for stressed-out students are an increasingly popular offering at North American universities. Now, new research confirms that some doggy one-on-one time really can do the trick of boosting student wellness.
      Therapy dog sessions for stressed-out students are an increasingly popular offering at North American universities. Now, new research from the University of British Columbia confirms that some doggy one-on-one time really can do the trick of boosting student wellness.
      "Therapy dog sessions are becoming more popular on university campuses, but there has been surprisingly little research on how much attending a single drop-in therapy dog session actually helps students," said Emma Ward-Griffin, the study's lead author and research assistant in the UBC department of psychology. "Our findings suggest that therapy dog sessions have a measurable, positive effect on the wellbeing of university students, particularly on stress reduction and feelings of negativity."
      In research published today in Stress and Health, researchers surveyed 246 students before and after they spent time in a drop-in therapy dog session. Students were free to pet, cuddle and chat with seven to 12 canine companions during the sessions. They also filled out questionnaires immediately before and after the session, and again about 10 hours later.
      The researchers found that participants reported significant reductions in stress as well as increased happiness and energy immediately following the session, compared to a control group of students who did not spend time at a therapy dog session. While feelings of happiness and life satisfaction did not appear to last, some effects did.

      Mama always told me don't you run
      "Don't you run with scissors, son
      You're gonna hurt someone"
      Mama told me look before you leap
      Always think before you speak, and watch the friends you keep

      Stay along the beaten path, never listened when she said

      Sharp edges have consequences, I
      Guess that I had to find out for myself
      Sharp edges have consequences, now
      Every scar is a story I can tell

      Should've played it safer from the start
      Loved you like a house of cards
      Let it fall apart
      But all the things I couldn't understand
      Never could've planned
      They made me who I am
      Put your nose in paperbacks
      Instead of smoking cigarettes
      These are years you're never getting back

      Stay along the beaten path, never listened when she said

      Sharp edges have consequences, I
      Guess that I had to find out for myself
      Sharp edges have consequences, now
      Every scar is a story I can tell

      We all fall down
      We live somehow
      We learn what doesn't kill us makes us stronger
      We all fall down
      We live somehow
      We learn what doesn't kill us makes us stronger

      IÂ’m dancing with my demons
      IÂ’m hanging off the edge
      Storm clouds gather beneath me
      Waves break above my head
      At first hallucination

      The number of American teens with depressed thoughts has been increasing since 2012. Looking at the data, it's possible to rule out some factors that might be causing it, like economic inequality and academic pressure. Jean Twenge, author of "iGen," believes all signs point to increased smartphone use as the likely cause. Twenge says it's not necessarily the screen time but the time that's lost to smartphones that could be spent on more meaningful activities, like face-to-face interaction. Around 2012, something started going wrong in the lives of teens.
      In just the five years between 2010 and 2015, the number of U.S. teens who felt useless and joyless – classic symptoms of depression – surged 33 percent in large national surveys. Teen suicide attempts increased 23 percent. Even more troubling, the number of 13- to 18-year-olds who committed suicide jumped 31 percent.
      In a new paper published in Clinical Psychological Science, my colleagues and I found that the increases in depression, suicide attempts and suicide appeared among teens from every background – more privileged and less privileged, across all races and ethnicities and in every region of the country.
      All told, our analysis found that the generation of teens I call "iGen" – those born after 1995 – is much more likely to experience mental health issues than their millennial predecessors.
      What happened so that so many more teens, in such a short period of time, would feel depressed, attempt suicide and commit suicide?

      Everyone knows that a dog is a man’s best friend, but a recently released Swedish study is giving that hackneyed saying a whole new meaning for men — and women — everywhere.
      The study, published in Scientific Reports on Friday, found that dog ownership may really help you live longer.
      The study tracked, over a period of 12 years, more than 3.4 million Swedish adults without a history of heart disease. Overall, the study concluded, dog ownership was associated with lower risk of cardiovascular disease and "all-cause mortality" in the general population.
      The effects of dog ownership were especially pronounced in single-person households, where the presence of a pet lowered the risk of death by 33 percent and chances of a heart attack by 11 percent.
      The study linked ownership of breeds originally bred for hunting, including terriers and retrievers, with the lowest risk of CVD.

      (CNN)The benefits that come with owning a dog are clear-- physical activity, support, companionship -- but owning a dog could literally be saving your life
      Dog ownership is associated with a reduced risk for cardiovascular disease and death, finds a new Swedish study published Friday in the journal Scientific Reports.
      For people living alone, owning a dog can decrease their risk of death by 33% and their risk of cardiovascular related death by 36%, when compared to single individuals without a pet, according to the study. Chances of a heart attack were also found to be 11% lower.
      Multi-person household owners also saw benefits, though to a lesser extent. Risk of death among these dog owners fell by 11% and their chances of cardiovascular death were 15% lower. But their risk of a heart attack was not reduced by owning a dog.

      I've got an aching head
      Echoes and buzzing noises
      I know the words we said
      But wish I could've turned our voices down
      This is not black and white
      Only organized confusion
      I'm just trying to get it right
      And in spite of all I should've done

      I was not mad at you
      I was not trying to tear you down
      The words that I could've used
      I was too scared to say out loud
      If I cannot break your fall
      I'll pick you up right off the ground
      If you felt invisible, I won't let you feel that now

      Invisible
      Invisible
      Invisible
      Invisible

      You didn't get your way
      And it's an empty feeling
      You've got a lot to say
      And you just want to know you're being heard
      But this is not black and white
      There are no clear solutions
      And I'm just trying to get it right
      And in spite of all I should've done

      I was not mad at you
      I was not trying to tear you down
      The words that I could've used
      I was too scared to say out loud
      If I cannot break your fall
      I'll pick you up right off the ground
      If you felt invisible, I won't let you feel that now

      Invisible
      Invisible
      Invisible
      Invisible

      This is not black and white
      There are no clear solutions
      I'm just trying to get it right
      And in spite of all I should've done

      I was not mad at you
      I was not trying to tear you down
      The words that I could've used
      I was too scared to say out loud
      If I cannot break your fall
      I'll pick you up right off the ground
      If you felt invisible, I won't let you feel that now

      Invisible
      Invisible
      Invisible
      Invisible
      Invisible

      I got a long way to go
      And a long memory
      I been searching for an answer
      Always just out of reach
      Blood on the floor
      Sirens repeat
      I been searching for the courage
      To face my enemies
      When they turn down the lights

      [Chorus]
      I hear my battle symphony
      All the world in front of me
      If my armor breaks
      I’ll fuse it back together
      Battle symphony
      Please just don’t give up on me
      And my eyes are wide awake

      [Bridge]
      For my battle symphony
      For my battle symphony

      [Verse 2]
      They say that I don’t belong
      Say that I should retreat
      That I’m marching to the rhythm
      Of a lonesome defeat
      But the sound of your voice
      Puts the pain in reverse
      No surrender, no illusions
      And for better or worse
      When they turn down the lights

      [Chorus]
      I hear my battle symphony
      All the world in front of me
      If my armor breaks
      I’ll fuse it back together
      Battle symphony
      Please just don’t give up on me
      And my eyes are wide awake

      [Bridge]
      If I fall, get knocked down
      Pick myself up off the ground
      If I fall, get knocked down
      Pick myself up off the ground
      When they turn down the lights

      [Chorus]
      I hear my battle symphony
      All the world in front of me
      If my armor breaks
      I’ll fuse it back together
      Battle symphony
      Please just don’t give up on me
      And my eyes are wide awake
      For my battle symphony
      For my battle symphony

      Feeling blue? You can now ask Google for help.
      The search giant wants people with depression to seek treatment and will prompt US users when they search for depression-related terms: “Check if you’re clinically depressed.”
      Users will then be directed to a clinically validated questionnaire, called a PHQ-9, to measure their level of depression, Google explained on its blog. The questionnaire is not meant to replace a mental health professional.
      Google — which partnered with the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) to create the self-evaluation — hopes the confidential survey will spur more people to broach the subject with their doctor.

      In the brains of Alzheimer’s patients, many of the genes required to form new memories are shut down by a genetic blockade, contributing to the cognitive decline seen in those patients.
      MIT researchers have now shown that they can reverse that memory loss in mice by interfering with the enzyme that forms the blockade. The enzyme, known as HDAC2, turns genes off by condensing them so tightly that they can’t be expressed.
      For several years, scientists and pharmaceutical companies have been trying to develop drugs that block this enzyme, but most of these drugs also block other members of the HDAC family, which can lead to toxic side effects. The MIT team has now found a way to precisely target HDAC2, by blocking its interaction with a binding partner called Sp3.
      “This is exciting because for the first time we have found a specific mechanism by which HDAC2 regulates synaptic gene expression,” says Li-Huei Tsai, director of MIT’s Picower Institute for Learning and Memory and the study’s senior author.
      Blocking that mechanism could offer a new way to treat memory loss in Alzheimer’s patients. In this study, the researchers used a large protein fragment to interfere with HDAC-2, but they plan to seek smaller molecules that would be easier to deploy as drugs.
      Picower Institute postdocs Hidekuni Yamakawa, Jemmie Cheng, and Jay Penney are the lead authors of the study, which appears in the Aug. 8 edition of Cell Reports.

      The age at which a male first sees pornography is associated with certain sexist attitudes later in life, according to a team of researchers from the University of Nebraska.
      Their survey revealed the younger the first viewing occurred, the more likely a male was to want power over women.
      While if they were older, they were more likely to be sexually promiscuous.
      Of the 330 undergraduates surveyed, with a median age of 20, the average age they first saw pornography was 13.
      The youngest was only five, while the oldest was 26.
      The unpublished findings were presented at a convention in Washington.
      Playboy lifestyle
      Lead researcher Alyssa Bischmann and her team asked the men, the vast majority of whom were heterosexual and white, when they first saw porn and whether it was intentional, accidental or forced.
      They were then asked 46 questions which measured how they conformed to one of two behavioural traits - seeking power over women or sexually promiscuous behaviour and living a playboy lifestyle.

      I dreamed I was missing
      You were so scared
      But no one would listen
      'Cause no one else cared

      After my dreaming
      I woke with this fear
      What am I leaving
      When I'm done here?

      So if you're asking me
      I want you to know

      When my time comes
      Forget the wrong that I've done
      Help me leave behind some
      Reasons to be missed
      And don't resent me
      And when you're feeling empty
      Keep me in your memory
      Leave out all the rest
      Leave out all the rest

      Don't be afraid
      I've taken my beating
      I've shared what I've made
      I'm strong on the surface
      Not all the way through
      I've never been perfect
      But neither have you

      So if you're asking me
      I want you to know

      When my time comes
      Forget the wrong that I've done
      Help me leave behind some
      Reasons to be missed
      Don't resent me
      And when you're feeling empty
      Keep me in your memory
      Leave out all the rest
      Leave out all the rest

      Forgetting all the hurt inside
      You've learned to hide so well
      Pretending someone else can come
      And save me from myself
      I can't be who you are

      When my time comes
      Forget the wrong that I've done
      Help me leave behind some
      Reasons to be missed
      Don't resent me
      And when you're feeling empty
      Keep me in your memory
      Leave out all the rest
      Leave out all the rest

      Forgetting all the hurt inside
      You've learned to hide so well
      Pretending someone else can come
      And save me from myself
      I can't be who you are
      I can't be who you are
