Since the devastating passing of Linkin Park legend Chester Bennington in 2017, Talinda Bennington has been hard at work co-founding 320 Changes Direction and doing some incredible things to promote a change in culture surrounding mental health.
And, as part of that, Talinda has currently been rallying for fans to upload their own 30-second stories as part of the A Week To Change Direction campaign, in the hope that the videos go viral and the message is spread even wider.
“I’m so excited for this week – it’s A Week To Change Direction,” she says in a new video on Instagram. “I challenge you to do a 30-second video on why mental health is important to you. For me, it’s very personal, and I’ve dedicated my life to change the culture surrounding mental health. So with your video, please don’t forget to post #ChangeDirection. Can’t wait to see what you guys have to say!”
The full caption reads: “Here’s my goal… I want to see A Week To Change Direction videos go viral! Imagine if each one of us got two people to do the challenge?! I’m talking ‘Ice Bucket Challenge’ big! It’s super fun and a great way to directly help change the culture surrounding our mental health. Don’t forgot include the hashtag- #changedirection & #320changesdirection. Tag your friends that you challenge! I’ll repost the most unique (and slightly crazy) ones!! Let’s do this #LPFamily and #makechesterproud I challenge @la_co_fire_department_1 @maroengel and @lisalingstagram @tedstryker @kroq @mrjoehahn @heidihahn @m_shinoda @phoenixlp”
