Paul, 22, said he would donate $1 million to suicide prevention organizations.

The move comes after he was roundly criticized for showing a video in late December that showed a dead body hanging from a tree in Aokigahara, known as Japan’s “suicide forest.” Paul later apologized and took the video down.

“It's time to start a new chapter in my life as I continue to educate both myself and others on suicide,” Paul said his in new video, which has been viewed more than 10 million times, USA Today reported.

Earlier this month, YouTube removed Paul’s channels from Google Preferred, which hindered his earning power; and from Foursome, a series on the premium subscription service YouTube Red, USA Today reported.

“I've never been so humbled in my life by a single event," Logan said in the video after meeting with a suicide survivor and experts in suicide prevention, USA Today reported.
