I shot the end talk after shooting a video really late last night, thus the glitter on my face, I tried SOOO hard to get it all off so it wouldn't distract especially given the subject manner.

I like the tribute, as well as all your medley songs (and just songs in general :) ), but there were times in this one where you just sounded a little off or strained and it didn't seem to flow as natrually as it does in your others? Might just be me, but love listening as always :) thank you for all the work you put into these and all the positive vibes you put out there!

I so appreciate that you included songs from their new album as well as their biggest hits! Most of the covers and tributes I've heard only did the classics, but it's hard to forget a powerful song like "One More Light." So, once again, thank you!!

Well, I still get depressed for multiple reasons from time to time but nothing too serious, but when I was between 15 and 18 years old... it was horrible. Not a single day passed without me thinking how much I wanted to commit suicide, and actually tried it two times but, as you can tell, didn't work. My friend are the people responsable of me being alive and happy now :)

You did a fantastic tribute, and I loved your heart-felt message. 2 yrs ago I lost my 27 yr old nephew to suicide. Most tragic day of my life, but never more so for his parents and sisters. {{HUGS}} to you for standing up and speaking out. There's always hope, if you just take the time to look for it, and reach out when you need that extra helping hand. Thank you again Peter.

This is a beautiful tribute. It's such an important message to talk about mental health, to check in with friends and family. We need to look out for each other. Much love to you, Peter. This is fantastic (as always!)

I have dealt with my own demons. As a teenager I want to end this, but it was my mom that stopped me. I don't want to hurt her.

Hey guys, I just wanted to share about myself with you all. I can remember being suicidal on a daily basis from the age of 12 on for 20 years, I'm currently 54 and I'll be 55 in November. It may have even started prior to 12, but because I really have no memories prior to 12, I'm not sure. In 1987, at the age of 25 I made my first suicide attempt. Over the next 8 years I had, that I could remember to count, 17 admissions for suicide attempts. What you must understand was that I had gone to nursing school, so I KNEW how much I needed to take of any particular drug or combinations of drugs to create what should have been a HIGHLY LETHAL cocktail of drugs to cause death. Those 17 admissions don't count the times that I overdosed, laid down to sleep expecting to never wake up again. But I did. It also doesn't count the times when someone caught me and stopped me from overdosing. You also must understand that I was TRULY TRYING TO DIE! I was absolutely NOT looking for attention. All I knew was how bad I hurt, but I didn't understand why. As a teenager I worked at McDonald's and on the weekends I closed and had to help clean the store from the day and get it ready for the crew that would open the next morning. When I closed I wouldn't get home until 2 or 3 in the morning. I would sit in our den with a butcher knife and ball my eyes out because I wanted to slash my wrists so I could die. But I hurt so bad emotionally that I couldn't stand the physical pain just long enough to bleed out. I was an absolute mess. The last time I was hospitalized was in Jan 1995. It was the one "psychotic" break that I had. A switch in my brain just flipped! I was going to take all three of my kids outside and shoot them and then I was going to shoot myself. In that moment I REALLY believed that I was doing EVERYONE a favor! I look back on that moment now, and it absolutely terrifies me! I thank God everyday that He sent me intervention! All the previous hospitalizations had been between 3 weeks to 3 months long, this one . . . it was a YEAR long! At one point, I was literally on enough medication for THREE PEOPLE!!! At some point in that year I realized that the pain that I was feeling was merely temporary! I was still feeling the pain in that moment, but it did get better. At one point in 1995, sometime around October, there was a pastor that prayed over me. Say what you will, believe what you want. But it was a PIVOTAL moment in my healing process. As he walked away from me he turned from me and said that, "In a year, someone will be writing about your story, your healing!" I kind of blew it off. I mean really? Who would want to be writing about me? I'm nobody! A year later I had a chance encounter with a man named Harold Koenig. He's a geriatric psychiatrist at Duke University Medical Center in Durham NC by trade, but his life long research has been about how having a faith, any faith, Christianity, Buddhism, Islamic, etc (you get the idea) affects/effects our staying healthy, our healing when we get sick, and in fact our dying when we don't get well. How that faith or the lack of that faith helps us, or not . . . And in that chance meeting and my unintentionally overhearing a radio interview that he was doing, when his interview was over, we started talking and he told me he was writing a new book and could he have someone call me and interview me over the phone for his book. I said sure. It was MONTHS later when someone reminded me of what that pastor had told me, that in a year, we'll be writing about you. In that instant, I was absolutely flabbergasted! I had completely forgotten about that! After the book came out there was a local paper that did an interview with Dr. Koenig about his book and wrote a two page spread about it, and then there was an article written about his book in the Duke University Alumni Magazine. In both articles, out of all the HUNDREDS of people that he mentioned in his book I was the only persons story that was mentioned in both articles (local paper and alumni mag) I didn't even know that the articles had been written until I went to church one Sunday and people kept saying something about the articles. No one had told me about them. I was FLOORED!

But the point is, I was released from the hospital in Jan of 1996, a year after being admitted. Before the end of 1996 I was completely off of ALL medications, and I've never had to be put back on them since. And believe me, I have been through a BUNCH of stuff since then that MOST people would have trouble dealing with! So, my point in sharing all of this with you is to hopefully support you and help you believe that there IS a BRIGHT LIGHT at the end of the tunnel! I can't promise that you will be healed, but I know that I could NEVER have survived these last 21 years without having a SOLID firm belief in God. In knowing that He is ALWAYS there fore me. Even when it FEELS like He's not! You have to understand that just because you believe in God, it doesn't mean that you won't ever have anymore problems, it just means that you don't have to go it alone anymore!

If any of you feel the need to "talk" please reach out to me! I will respond as quickly as I see something from someone. I truly hope this might have been helpful and encouraging to someone. And I apologize for the length!

Be Blessed & Much Love

I live in Holland and I'm being treated for my depression. Some days are better than others, but I see a light at the end of the tunnel! I'm a strong person and as much of a fight this is, my family and friends show me every day that they are the reason why I fight! Whatever you do and how dark it may seem, stay strong!!! Reach out!!! It gets better!!

I have watched a few tribute videos for Chester, this one had me in tears! Beautifully done Peter, it truly is. I also watched your video for Heavy, another great song by you. To see that you are a LP fan makes this even more special as you must feel the hurt we are all feeling. You have some set of pipes on you!! Thank you for sharing this with us all. I shared this with the LP family on twitter also so hopefully they see it. X

SO many likes for this video! In the past few years, the only 2 deaths of celebrities that I've cried over were Chester Bennington... and Robin Williams. It will NEVER not be "too soon" to joke about them dying, because their deaths are so tragic. Great job, Peter. Thanks for this <3

I've suffered without being diagnosed until 2014 with P.T.S.D, Social Anxiety, Insomnia, and borderline personality disorder, all for which I was given meds for, and though it was never put in my chart, I also have borderline manic depression which I've been having to watch extremely closely since my Mother passed away in 2015. There are days that I hear a song, catch a scent, think I hear her voice from behind me, and it effects me deeply. People don't often realize that when you lose a parent, you don't just "get over it" or bounce back quickly, that is a loss that effects you for the remainder of your life. I know because I can have days where I'm happy go lucky, and then days where I'm emotionally distant and don't want to talk, or be around people. All of this being said, my mother suffered from mental illness, and would go from extreme highs to extreme lows, and have bursts of uncontrolled rage (manic depression aka bipolar depression is what she suffered from). So these conditions are ones I'm pre-disposed to and developed as I matured because my Mom suffered from at least 1 or 2 of the handful I have been diagnosed with. Mental illness isn't a joke or something that anyone should ever turn a blind eye to. Cutting, acting out of sorts, etc are actually ways a person may be crying out for help, so we should never ignore those warning signs.

Thank you for your comments at the end. :) I have a friend who is having issues. Grew up with a Sociopathic Narcissistic mother who taught him that anything he accomplishes is expected of him and any single mistake he makes means he isn't worth the air he breathes. We've gotten him out of the situation, but it's a daily struggle to keep him off of suicidal tendencies. I both hate and love hearing about other people going through that because while I wish they didn't have to, I love that there are ways to fight it out there and people who HAVE overcome and WILL overcome. Being ADHD and Depressed myself, it gives me hope.

I would love to hear 'geboren um zu leben' (Unheilig, german singer) from you, it is a song about the great feel of life! There is allways a reason to go a long the ways, which life might bring us to! Suizid isn't an option and we all should lend people a helping hand if they think so!

(an english version of this song is 'born to feel alive' from the gregorians, maybe you like this more?)

(i hope my english isn't to bad, it isn't my motherlanguage ^^')

Thank you Peter. It's a beautiful tribute. As someone who fights with mental illness - it's cost me jobs and opportunities, and while I'm now working I'm massively underemployed - it's a wonderful thing to see you as an ambassador for getting it into the open.
To everyone out there: BIG HUGS. I still fight every day but it is an easier fight now. I've found allies and understanding in the most unexpected places, and new problems in other ones. Every day is a new day, and if I can find a way to make the next day a little bit easier to face, I do so - and if I can't, tomorrow's a new day anyway. That's not to say the wolf is ever far from the door, because it isn't, but things do get better! MORE HUGS!!!

I've come to learn that many of those I look up to, many of the people whose lives I strive for, also suffer from depression. It makes me feel a little less lost, a little less lonely, and a little more like I can achieve the things I want to.

Wonderful tribute.Wonderful person, thank you Mr. Hollens.

LP helped me through very hard times and to watch Chester go was very hard. Working with him personally and seeing how positive and full of energy he was.. It was unbelievable to me when I heard the news. His music, his words had so much meaning. He always tried to care for people, he always was the one light reaching out to millions to help them through their tough times. It is so sad to see another caring and loving person succumb to mental illness. RIP Chester, love you and miss you

Might as well give my two cents then, huh? I suffer from social and seperation anxiety. I don't do well when among people I don't know, so I cling to those i do know and follow them around.

My mother suffers from depression and anxiety, making life very hard for her. But if you see her, she always seems so happy and peaceful.

My brother seems to have ODD and that makes him a pain to deal with, but we keep living, dealing with our issues every day. Not easy for any of us.
