Logan Paul Returns To YouTube With Suicide Prevention Video

The disgraced vlogger is back on YouTube.

Weeks after he was criticized for an insensitive video in Japan's "Suicide Forest," Logan Paul has once again started posting vlogs. However, instead of his usual immature antics, the 22-year-old shared a video raising awareness for suicide prevention. In a voiceover, Paul states, "I know I've made mistakes. I know I've let people down. But what happens when you're given an opportunity to help make a difference in the world?"

The 7-minute video — titled, "Suicide: Be Here Tomorrow" — follows Paul as he attempts to educate himself about suicide. He speaks with several individuals about the mental health issue, including a man named Kevin Hines, who jumped off of San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge nearly two decades earlier and survived.

Later in the video, Paul details a 5-step plan that he and his fans can follow when they suspect someone may be contemplating suicide: Ask others if they're thinking about suicide, listen to what they have to say, be there for them, assist them in finding help, and check in on them later to see how they're doing.

It's clear from Paul's YouTube upload that he's trying to rebrand himself as a compassionate young adult — but is it sincere or is he simply trying to salvage his online career?

"It's time to learn from the past as I get better and grow as a human being," he says in the video. "I'm here to have a hard conversation so others that those who are suffering can have easier ones."

At the end of the YouTube video, Paul announced that he will be donating $1 million to suicide prevention organizations, starting with $250,000 to the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline.

As Nicki Swift previously reported, Paul faced enormous backlash after he posted a video featuring a dead body hanging in Japan's Aokigahara, a place where locals often go to commit suicide. Soon after, Paul apologized via a social media message and a video. He later told his followers that he'd be temporarily stopping filming for his vlogs, as he was "taking time to reflect."
