"Isiah was literally the light of any room," said Isiah Johnson's friend, Christopher Brown.
Six months after his friend passed away, Christopher Brown still asks himself what he could have done differently.
"I noticed a sudden change about a week before he passed away, it was like somebody cut the light switch off," said Brown.
Twenty-two year-old Isiah Johnson worked security with Brown, he was engaged with a three-year-old daughter and seven-month-old son. But on the inside, Isiah was suffering.
"The family was still in shock from the Friday's incident," said Toni Brinson, Isiah's cousin.
On a Friday morning last March, Isiah attempted suicide by overdosing on medication. He was brought to the hospital and had his stomach pumped, but hours later to his family's surprise, he was released.
"He told them he was ok at that point and they thought well we can release him because he is no longer actively suicidal," said Brinson.
Two days later, Isiah committed suicide. While his family doesn't blame the hospital, they are hoping to spread awareness that those helpless feelings can return days or weeks later.
"According to the Bakers Act, they are supposed to keep him for 72 hours," said Brinson.
An event was held Saturday as part of the family's "I am Isiah" initiative, to help those who may be feeling hopeless. They hope to give families support once their loved one is released from the hospital following a suicide attempt.
We want to help families through the time once they leave the hospital and offer them support during a difficult time," said Brinson.
The group plans to address the guidelines of the Baker Act in the future but for now, they are focused on keeping their ears open, for anyone who may be suffering in silence.
"If you love someone your supposed to probe, dig, irritate, bug em, because you never know what someone is going through," said Brown.
