Grant Halliburton Foundation was established in 2006 in memory of Grant Halliburton, a Dallas teen who battled depression and bipolar disorder for several years before his suicide death at the age of 19. The Foundation that bears his name works to help families and young people recognize the signs of mental illness through a variety of avenues including mental health education, resources, and support.

The Foundation offers a variety of presentations, programs, and an annual conference on mental wellness, suicide prevention, bullying, resilience, and other issues impacting youth mental health.

Grant Halliburton Foundation also developed Here For Texas, which includes HereForTexas.com, an online searchable database of mental health resources in Texas, and the Here For Texas Mental Health Navigation Line, a free helpline. These no-cost community tools aim to offer easy access for Texans seeking mental health and substance use resources and information.

Since 2006, Grant Halliburton Foundation has provides mental health education, training, and support to more than 300,000 students, educators, parents, and professionals.

Our Needs

Grant Halliburton Foundation seeks ongoing support for its mental health and suicide prevention programs focused on children, teens, young adults, and adults who live or work with youth.

Suicide is now the second leading cause of death for U.S. youth ages 10 to 24, according to The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. In Texas, we lose a teen to suicide at a rate of one per day and two per week in the DFW area, according to Texas Department of State Health Services.

Now more than ever, Grant Halliburton Foundation needs your support. We must make mental health part of the school culture and the Foundation will play a critical role in addressing the mental and emotional needs of children, teens, and young adults in North Texas.

Mission

Grant Halliburton Foundation works to strengthen the network of mental health resources for children, teens, and young adults; promote better mental health; and help prevent suicide.
