About Us

The purpose of The I Live Movement is to provide education on suicide awareness and address difficult topics (e.g. sexual or physical abuse, bullying, etc.) that may result in a person wanting to die. This will be done by teaching youth ages 12 to 18 years old, caregivers, and parents on how to discuss suicide ideation with someone in their age group or their child. The movement also focuses on recovery, forgiveness, and acceptance. The I Live Movement administers these conversations through speaking engagements, mentorship, round table discussions, and programming/community panel discussions. It is a platform in which a person can tell their story.

The goal of The I Live Movement is to provide a safe place for individuals to understand and learn how to have the conversation on suicide behavior and suicide ideation, in addition to providing them with the tools needed to save a life.

the ceo

Aisha Rehema-Gist Henderson is an Alumnus from Michigan State University (MSU). She graduated from MSU with two Bachelors degrees in Family Community Services and Human Biology, and a Master's degree in Social Work. During her time in undergrad and graduate school, she has written numerous poems. Most of the poems that she has written have either catered to her emotional experience or have been influenced through her relationship with God. Her first book, “The Voices Who Speak Out to the Silent Killer a collection of poems that speak to her personal experience with suicide ideation and how it has impacted her internally and those around her. You can purchase the book on Amazon if you would like to hear more about her experience with suicide ideation and coping with her friend and family member’s death, who committed suicide.

 

From these experiences, Aisha, has started a movement called, The I Live Movement, which was founded in 2016. She is the founder and CEO of the movement. The purpose of the movement is to educate individuals on suicide awareness and to teach individuals on how to have the conversation.

 

Many individuals go through a season of brokenness or endure a traumatic experience, in which they may be uncertain on how to move forward or manage the stress of the event. Thus, Aisha is hoping with her movement that individuals will have a better understanding of their purpose in God, enter a season of wholeness, and not be defined by their past or circumstance.

The Voices Who Speak Out to the Silent Killer

 

The purpose of this book is to share my personal collection of poetry that sheds light on suicide ideation and how to overcome these thoughts through hope and love. Some of the stories that have been shared in the book are from my own personal struggles with contemplating suicide, coping with a friend and family member who committed suicide, and also based upon my own observation of watching the news/television shows or hearing others struggle with suicidal thoughts. My goal for this book is to begin a conversation of openly talking about suicide and how to develop preventive strategies on reducing suicide ideation, ultimately giving the faces of suicide a voice.
