“The defining thing about Grant's character is that he was giving. There seemed to be no limit to Grant's propensity to give, help, and aid those in need… and it seemed as if he was most content when he knew that he was helping someone who really needed it.”

The Foundation

The Grant Halliburton Foundation was established in 2005 as a memorial to a gifted young artist and musician who battled depression and bipolar disorder for several years before his death at the age of 19. He left behind a legacy of creative works, including musical compositions, journals of writing and poetry, and hundreds of paintings and drawings.


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.


The Grant Halliburton Foundation is working to help people recognize the signs of mental illness. To help families know what to do before a treatable illness turns into a crisis. To help young people feel free to ask for help and to know where to get it.

It's about help.

It's about hope.

It's about peace of mind.
