Discover free resources and get life-saving support to help youth battle depression, suicide, bullying, and other daunting issues impacting youth mental health. Blanca Garcia, Director of Mental Health Resources for the Grant Halliburton Foundation (GHF), helps us slay the stigma of mental illness and tell us how to get the support we need.
Grant Halliburton Foundation (GHF) 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, collaboration, encouragement, and information.
The 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 addiction resources and information.
