Washington D.C. [USA], Sep 15 (ANI): Two months after his father took his own life, Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington's teenage son has released a video for National Suicide Prevention Week.

"I want to challenge you to do the same. To help yourself, not hurt yourself."

His father's band Linkin Park's seminal hit, 'Numb', played in the background as Bennington made his promise.
