I AM ISIAH

I AM ISIAH is a 501 C-3 nonprofit organization. We depend on donations and fundraisers to keep our organization open. We are very thankful to the community for supporting our efforts. If you are interested in making a donation, visit our "How You Can Help" page.

"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.

  • December- I AM ISIAH gave away 100 Christmas baskets to 100 families.                                                                                                                 We  gave 50 families free presents for Christmas and a kids Christmas party.

 MENTAL WELLNESS MONTH 

Mental health and wellness affect all aspects of our lives. It helps determine how we act, feel, and think, and it affects our ability to handle stress, connect to other people, and to make decisions. There are many factors that can affect your mental health and well-being including:

  • Your genes
  • Brain chemistry
  • Physical health
  • Relationships
  • Coping skills
  • Life experiences

There are a number of factors that could negatively affect mental wellness including:

  • Poor diet
  • High amounts of stress
  • Excessive smoking or drinking
  • Avoiding problems
  • Trauma or abuse in your life
  • Negative coping skills

How to improve your mental wellness

  1. Exercise and eat a healthy diet
  2. Appreciate yourself by learning to recognize your personal strengths and weakness
  3. Build resilience to cope with and recover from negative events
  4. Develop and maintain healthy friendships and relationships
  5. Get enough sleep
  6. Help others
  7. Learn to be thankful for the good rather than focusing on the negative issues
  8. Get professional help if needed

Mental health and wellness is important at any stage of life, from childhood through adulthood. Interim hopes that by recognizing factors that can affect your mental health and well-being, changing lifestyle choices that negatively impact one’s well-being, and seeking professional help when needed, will go a long way to living a healthier and better life overall.
