So I did. The show was Founded on 8 August 2009 by New Zealand comedian Mike King. You can find it streaming live on Sunday nights at www.radiolive.co.nz It covers all areas of suffering and experience of mental illness. For the first two hours the show normally has a guest and the following 2 hours is open line talk back. The last hour is the best of The Nutters Club. Most guests leave an indelible impression on the listener who can understand distressing circumstances.
I genuinely enjoy the weekly show as I love people’s idiosyncrasies. The show is non judgmental in its willful need to understand a persons experience. People own up to their own personal trangressions.

The show has also produced a book of mental health experiences called The Nutters Club. A review can be found at http://www.mentalhealth.org.nz/newsletters/view/ar...
In New Zealand we have trended to abolish mental illness institutions, in my opinion this has lead to anonymous suffering within our communities. To be fair many people here understand and have no stigma towards mental health consumers (patients).
On the other hand mental illness goes on and on not accepted as dysfunction.
I spent four months in a respite hospital in late 1998.
I would propose that our link to mental illness is found in the everyman’s experience of depression and anxiety. Without relevant checks it can balloon into full blown psychosis. When one is fully psychotic we are not concerned with the people we hurt, for all intensive purposes we are sick mentally and need help. It is like a large cut on the body that gets infected, without science and social interaction their is no cure.
My message to member’s spiritualnetworks.com is to enjoy messages from the universe but to also consider our mental and physical health as paramount.
The Nutters Club cements our vision in caring for ourselves and others.
