Grant Halliburton Foundation recently launched Grant Halliburton Foundation Young Professionals or GHF YP, a personal and professional development organization. Open to young professionals in their 20s and 30s, GHF YP is a home for the next generation of philanthropists to learn and grow while also supporting the organization’s work to advocate for stronger mental health education and suicide prevention in North Texas. Special thanks to launch party sponsors The Social Production and a little party co, along with BIRD Bakery, Boxed Bites, Community Beer Co. and Unrefined Bakery.
Kevin Hall, president of Grant Halliburton Foundation, said, “We are actively reaching out to this generation of young professionals to educate them on mental health, so that they can help others or even themselves. GHF YP is not only a professional development organization, but it is also one that creates connection and provides resources for young professionals.”
This remarkable organization offers young professionals the opportunity to make a positive impact on the community while networking, attending social events and professional development seminars, sharing their talents through volunteer opportunities and receiving special sponsorship rates at Grant Halliburton fundraising events. Dues range from $25 to $500 annually.

About Grant Halliburton Foundation
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 works to help families and young people recognize the signs of mental illness through a variety of avenues including education, conferences, collaboration and encouragement. Since 2006, the Foundation has provided mental health education, training, and support to more than 250,000 students, educators, parents, and professionals. The Foundation also offers Here For Texas, which includes HereForTexas.com and the Here For Texas Mental Health Navigation Line. These free community tools aim to offer easy access for North Texans seeking mental health and addiction information and resources. More information can be found at GrantHalliburton.org/.
