The Foundation

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

Grant Halliburton Foundation was established in 2006 in memory of 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 aims to help families and young people recognize the signs of mental illness through a variety of avenues including education, conferences, collaboration and encouragement.

The Foundation provides mental health education, training and support to more than 31,000 students, educators, parents and professionals annually.

The American Psychiatric Association estimates that one in five young people in the U.S. suffers from a diagnosable, treatable mental illness. Yet, nearly two-thirds of them get little or no help.

Even more disturbing is this fact: Suicide is the third leading cause of death among adolescents. No other disease claims more young lives than mental illness.

We want to change that.

We can use your help. Donate Now to support the work of Grant Halliburton Foundation.

It’s about help.

It’s about hope.

It’s about peace of mind
