Alaskan Bush People‘s Matt Brown is beginning a self-help forum for followers, with both the advice and support pouring in.

Right off the bat, Matt thanks his friends and followers for submitting ideas for his self-help topics. The Alaskan Bush People alum is “committing” himself to regular videos on the topic, and it’s already creating a whirlwind of grateful responses on Instagram.

“Hi friends! I haven’t been doing my recovery or self-improvement videos as much as I would like, so I decided to make an obligation to help me keep on track,” Brown captions his video update Sunday, with his “special thanks to all my friends out there for sending so many suggestions for video topics.”

In fact, Matt has printed out each topic suggestion, cutting them into strips he’s put into a bowl. From it, he’ll draw a topic for the next video. Through this fantastic interaction with fans, Matt is “setting good goals” to address these topics with followers. Doing so helps with a sense of accomplishment that keeps him from “slipping back into destructive behaviors,” he notes.

The Alaskan Bush People vet offers us “laziness” as an example. “If I don’t set goals up for myself throughout the day, I slip back into a lazy, dirty environment,” he details. Through keeping his house clean, Matt sets the same precedent for his mental state. It may seem like basic self-help, but reminding others to embrace these behaviors along with him can make all the difference in the world.

Through setting up this self-help communication with fans as a “healthy obligation,” Matt says he keeps himself in a daily “rhythm or pattern that’s beneficial” for both himself and others. And isn’t that what it’s all about?

‘Alaskan Bush People’ Fans Rave on Matt Brown’s Openness with Recovery

Now more than ever, fans of the Discovery show and followers of Matt’s journey are showing tremendous support for his openness. The 36-year-old is far more open with his struggles, recovery, and daily upkeep than most – and it’s not lost on his Instagram followers for a second.

“Really proud of how far you’ve come Matt. And how you share your recovery and self improvement with us. You are a massive inspiration. And always know we are here with you,” replies follower Jess.

“Want to thank you for your videos… There are many out there still suffering in silence,” echoes Matt Brown may no longer be on Discovery’s Alaskan Bush People with his siblings. But instead, he’s found his true calling.
