Speaking to Kerrang about the impact of the Numb singer's death, she said: "Imagine having to explain to your 11-year-old son why his best friend, his idol, had taken his life."

She added: "Also knowing one day you will have to explain why and how Daddy died to your two little girls. The only way I could think to ever explain this tragedy was to teach them about mental health.

"Their daddy wasn't well, and they do have to understand this on a macro scale. Their daddy touched and saved lives through his music, and through his death he will do the same."

The campaigner - who describes Bennington as her "soulmate" concluded: "Their father cannot have died in vain - there has to be a change to our mental health culture and society."
