"Hi, I'm Draven Bennington, and I'm here on National Suicide Prevention Week," he says. "I want to make a commitment that I will to someone before I hurt myself when I'm feeling depressed, sad or going through a hard week, month or year. I want to challenge you to do the same -- to help yourself, not hurt yourself."
