Two brothers, one 27, the other 24. Greens will give free mental health services to only one of them

The Green Party in government will fund free counselling for all New Zealanders aged 25 and under as part of a $260 million youth mental health package.

“Free counselling for any young person who wants to talk about the ups and downs they are experiencing with a trained professional will make a huge difference to people’s wellbeing,” Green Party leader James Shaw said today.

“Everyone goes through ups and downs and as a society we can do more to recognise that and support people through hard times, so that the hard times don’t get worse.

“We need to end the stigma and shame for our young people around emotional wellbeing, encourage people to speak up, and when they do, make sure there is help readily available.

“Every suicide is a tragedy and we know from overseas evidence that there are things government can do that will make a difference to stop suicides from happening.

“The Green Party believes that suicide is preventable and we want to work towards zero suicide within our healthcare system.

Zero suicide, but they are only helping you for free if you are younger.  Stuff the farmers about to hang themselves from the shed’s rafters because they can no longer pay for all the new taxes.

This will be to ensure that people with gender identity issues get a nice free ride through the system.  Cutting out family, parents and the community.   Another win for the socialist state.
