Sister Wives: Garrison Brown’s Sister Reveals Why He Committed Suicide

Garrison Brown’s sister, Madison Brown, is speaking out about the Sister Wives personality’s mental heath issues, two weeks after the 25-year-old was found dead by a suicide.

Garrison died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound, earlier this month. Kody and Janelle Brown’s son was laid to rest four days later. 

On Monday, the 28-year-old took to Instagram to share her thoughts as she  addressed the family tragedy.

“Mental health is so important, and I don’t think we talk about it enough, and I don’t think we do enough to bring awareness,” Madison said, through tears.

The mom of three clarified that her brother had not been bullied, nor was it a “lack of love” that led to his decision to end his own life. 

“It was mental health, and I am going to continue talking about mental health and self-love until I’m blue in the face because I don’t think it’s talked about enough in a way that people understand it,” she said.

Madison also shared that she had learned that “time is precious,” in the wake of her brother’s death. 

“If you’re not happy with how you’re spending your time and you don’t feel fulfilled in life, then I would encourage you to reevaluate because it’s so fleeting and it’s so precious and I noticed that, especially these last two weeks, with having kids, too, social media is not real,” Madison told her  followers. 

She added that she was committed to online authenticity, because social media does not paint a true picture of a person’s life.

“I’m done with filters,” she declared. 

Madison added — “It’s a highlight reel, and that was something that Garrison and I talked about, and I know my other siblings and my mom had expressed this, that Garrison used to feel like he wasn’t doing enough because he was comparing himself to things on social media, and I don’t think that it’s real, and I think we need to remember that.”

She encouraged her followers to remember that Instagram only shows snippets of reality.

Madison also shared that she had learned to appreciate the value of a strong community and loving others even if you have “differences.”

“I’ve had a phenomenal community show up, and also my siblings, we all disagree, we’re all very strongly opinionated people, and we have disagreements,” she said.

Madison added that her family members had reunited over the loss, and had loved each other despite their “differences.”

“So if you’re struggling with community, I would encourage you to get out and talk to people and get away from your screens, and social media’s not real, and get community with your family, your friends, your loved ones,” she said. 

Madison concluded her emotional message by thanking her followers for sending messages of love and support after Garrison’s death.

“Thank you for the outpouring of love that we’ve had,” she said. “I have received probably thousands of messages from you guys just saying condolences, talking about your experiences with suicide, and just love, and I wanted to say thank you for that because I maybe didn’t respond, but I read them, and a lot of you had experienced something like this, so it’s crazy how many people it touches.”

She explained that while the first week following her brother’s passing was “horrible,” she wanted to reach out to her followers because she “loves” the platform.

“I know social media can be controversial, but Instagram is my platform. It’s one that I have babied. It’s one that I’ve cultivated my following,” she explained. “I love connecting with you guys, so I wanted to get back to normalcy here.”

Madison’s caption noted that it felt “surreal” to move on after such a traumatic loss. 

“I shared with a friend, who has also been intimately touched by the tragedy of suicide, how surreal it feels to step back into the rhythm of ‘normal life’ — observing others engaged in their everyday routines while my mind remains consumed with thoughts of Garrison,” she wrote. “She acknowledged that the shadow of such a loss lingers for months.”

“Though I am not naive to the fact of returning to what once was ‘normal’ wont be happening. I find myself prepared to start getting back into this new normalcy.”

Last week, Mykelti Padron, daughter of Kody and Christine Brown, said in a posted video that Garrison would be “happy” that the divided Brown clan had come together over the heartbreaking loss.

Kody and Janelle Brown share five additional children together, Logan, Hunter, Gabriel and daughters, Madison and Savanah.
