I AM ISIAH

"When someone you love becomes a memory, that memory becomes a treasure."

 I AM ISIAH, Inc. was created by Mr. Osibisa Johnson, the father of 5 young adults, after his 22 year old son, Isiah Johnson, completed the act of suicide in March of 2013. At the time of his death, Isiah was the father of a 3 year old daughter and a 7 month old son. His family had no reason to think that Isiah was suicidal until 2 days before his death when he attempted suicide. After bringing him home from the hospital, his family was unaware of how to help him and 2 days later he completed the act of suicide. I AM ISIAH Inc. strives to educate the community in hopes of  saving other families from having to endure this tragedy.

Every month, I AM ISIAH has events going on in the community. From fundraisers, to community events, being a guest at other organizations events, offering classes or doing presentations at school or nursing homes. Check back each month to see what we are doing to help the community.

 

I understand that some people like to be independent and not put their problems on other people but we all have to understand that we don't have to do it on our own. There's no need to struggle in silents with anything. 

 

A supportive and helpful friend/ family member can make you feel a lot better if you are welling to open up and share what's going on. Sharing your fears and worries should never make you feel ashamed. It's easy to struggle alone but it takes a strong person to know when they need help and to ask for it.

Everyone in the world experiences problems and troubles every now and then, but it’s the people who are willing to admit when they need help who are most adaptable to life.

 

We can’t be afraid to ask for help when life gets overwhelming or out of our control. Real limitations can exist in our lives, we can’t devote an infinite amount of time and energy on everything – so sometimes we need that extra hand from others.
