Let’s change the way
we talk about mental health.
We believe education is the first step to overcoming mental health barriers and stigma in our communities. Stigma surrounding mental health often prevents people from seeking appropriate help.
One in five young people lives with a mental health condition, including anxiety, eating disorders, addiction, depression, and other mood disorders. We cannot ignore the need for knowledge and education surrounding mental health.
Annually, Grant Halliburton Foundation trains more than 35,000 students, educators, parents, and professionals across North Texas on topics like depression, suicide prevention, bullying, and resilience.
Our hope is to equip youth and adults with the tools and knowledge to raise awareness, recognize signs of distress, and seek help.
Youth education Programs
Grant Halliburton Foundation offers presentations that teach K–12 students about important aspects of their mental health. Our skilled presenters make these topics engaging and interactive for students of all ages. We talk about stress management, resilience, depression, bullying, and suicide prevention.
Adult education Programs
Grant Halliburton Foundation offers captivating presentations that provide teachers, parents, and professionals with valuable information on promoting mental wellness, building resilience, and recognizing the signs of depression and suicidal crisis in youth.
Thrive is a comprehensive strategy developed by Grant Halliburton Foundation for mental, social, and emotional health in schools. In addition to the Foundation, Thrive partners include The Meadows Mental Health Policy Institute, UT Dallas Center for BrainHealth, Okay to Say, and Hope Squad. The purpose of Thrive is to elevate the commitment to mental, social, and emotional health in local educational environments.
Hope Squad is a school-based peer support team of trustworthy and caring students trained to watch for at-risk peers, provide friendship, identify suicide warning signs, and seek help from adults.
