WELLINGTON, Sept 12 - The Green party's youth mental health policy will include $5 million targeted directly at LGBT+ school support services, she says.

"Our young people are being short-changed by a society that is still not catering to their needs, especially by the Prime Minister's Youth Mental Health Project, which seems to overlook queer kids and their health needs," she said.

"Each student has the right for their unique identity to be recognised, respected and celebrated."

Logie said the funding would allow LGBT+ peer led programmes to be established, and for the development of other services and support programmes.
