Welcome to the Nutters Club

Welcome to The Nutters Club, an online resource designed to inspire discussion and offer help with all things related to mental health.

You can join the discussion on Facebook
and find us talking it up over at Newstalk ZB.

Founded in 2009 by Mike King, The Nutters Club began life as a radio show which encouraged us all to take ownership of our own mental health.

In the years following we’ve made it to TV, published a book and have a robust Facebook community where people interact every day. This website has been designed to be the hub for all things Nutters Club. Whether you’ve heard us on the radio, found us online or on TV, or if you’ve been referred to this site by your health professional, you are welcome here.

By 13 he was into drugs, by 17 into his first prison term.
