- Kiefer Chriss
Hi David, Thanks again for all the information. My son thanks you as
well. I've made an appointment with my MD to discuss and get a referral.
God bless you for your concern and taking the time to help!
Hi Dave, Thanks for sharing. I use a lot of the info you have
provided. Some I read and wonder if I will ever use it and then an
occasion comes up where I do or I can educate someone else in a certain
area. Thanks for all you do.
Your information has helped me so much, by saving me time and energy
Your program is, for us, the most methodic, concise, and
comprehensive I've seen on the subject. I am recommending it to our church
(who runs a depression and bipolar support/therapy group).
Dear David, I greatly appreciate all the info you send. it has
definitely been the most valuable info on the web for bi-polar.
Dear David, I enjoy your tips and your course immensely, I am the
one who suffers from bipolar disorder, I also have manic depression, with
panic and anxiety disorder and obsessive compulsive disorder, However the
information you send is very helpful to my husband and kids, who have no
real idea how to deal with me or understand what i go through. I love your
commitment to this and appreciate all the information you send us. I live
in Canada and I'm glad you do this for people. Please keep your excellent
work up, We need all the help we can get.
- Wendy Balkwill
I found your course to be honest and educating to the public. I
appreciated you sending me the info, I read it and agreed with you. People
who have love ones who have bi-polar need as much education as they can
receive about how to deal with the disease. The disease can affect other
people as well as the patient who has it, and it is a very gross and
difficult disease to deal with unless you understand the various
components of the disease and the particular aspects of the individuals
needs to prevent an episode and to encourage them to keep taking their
medication. Thank you.
-Dr. Colette M. Dowell, ND
Your information is a godsend and I appreciate your candid way of
communicating with us. More often than not, I feel that you are addressing
me and it is really cool. Cheers!
Hello Dave: I must say that it is admirable that you take the time
out to share with others your knowledge as well as your personal
experiences with Bipolar. Information may well be at the fingertips of
many, but to actually receive information from one who has "been
there" is a completely different approach.
I have found throughout my search for answers that many are readily
available but may not be the solution best fit for the individual
situation. I have found the information provided to me from your course to
be both helpful and reassuring. The information reassures me that I am not
the only one that recognizes the existence of a need and to the extent.
Once again, Dave, the information provided by you is very helpful. Keep up
the good work. Thanks.
I think your course is great...You offer a lot of information and a
lot of personal experience.
You have helped me so much. You have answered questions when I have
emailed you and if everyone took the interest, time and love you gave your
-Rhonda Marie Rose
You have given me so much info. about this disorder. I found out
only a month ago that I had this disorder. You have helped my family and I
so much with what you share about bipolar disorder. I really appreciate
everything. Thank You.
I have got A TON of great information from your course. I am VERY
glad I got it.
What I have read in your course has helped me to better understand
and not be so critical of her and right now she really needs
understanding. She is 51 and was not diagnosed until her seven way bypass
surgery accentuated all of her feelings. I need you.
I want to tell you how much you are helping me. I live with a man
whom I love with all my heart and we are gonna get married in February. I
just want to say thank-you. I don't always deal with him the best way, but
I'm learning." -Jodie "Mr. Oliver; I think it is a great thing
that you are helping people like myself. I am 34 years old and I have been
diagnosed with bipolar and SEVERE depression. I feel like your mom would
be very proud of what you're doing especially since you were a ANGEL of
God that rescued and got her the help she needed. I bet you don't get many
thank-you's but Mr. Oliver I thank you !!!!
Dear Dave, Your information on bipolar disorder has helped me
tremendously. I appreciate people like you. You're a terrific guy and
thank you so very much for writing these and keeping me informed on
experiences and facts concerning bipolar disorder.
David, You ARE helping many of us...at least in my case you are. My
husband was just diagnosed to be bipolar. We got married a year and a half
ago. The attitude and the actions he was portraying to me hurt me so much.
It is VERY hard to understand why a person who says they love you can
cause so much pain. I realized I was undereducated in detecting and
understanding my husband.
Your course has brought new light into my path of life besides my
husband. He experienced an episode of mania that complicated our finances
(we are about to finish paying the down payment on a house) and our
relationship was about to end. I really owe you a big thanks for taking
the time to educate us and for your great efforts in opening our eyes to
the real "story" behind a bipolar person or situation.
To be honest with you, along our pathway in life we will do our best
and there will always be someone who is not satisfied regardless of the
great benefit we are bringing to this world. So keep you head up high
because you have enlightened many of our lives. :-)

Greetings, You helped me with that, just by bolstering my self
confidence and by the information you provide. Because of you, I did not
give up on finding the right doctor.
I am involved with someone that is bipolar and your information
helps answer many questions and also help me think of questions that I
should have answered. Thank you.
Hi Dave, I read all of the emails that you send me. I actually have
bipolar disorder and forward the information to my family that I feel is
relevant to them. It is also nice to hear the families side of things. I
like the access to the links. I gain much needed information from them. I
appreciate all the work that you do. Keep up the good work! :)
-Trudy, Toronto Canada
I read every one of your information and I always learn something.
PLEASE keep up the good work. And thank you.
-Lisa Stefano Haggerty
I can tell you one thing I know for a fact.. YOU HAVE HELPED ME
TREMENDOUSLY. THANKS SO MUCH
HI David your online course has been a great deal of help I
understand bipolar disorder better and have tools now to work
Hi David Oliver your information helped my family learn to cope with
bipolar disorder. it really helped me out a lot. thank you for your help.
The e-mails I get help me in many different ways. First of all, I
don't feel alone in dealing with the problems my child faces. And second
of all, at times when I feel overwhelmed and think, "What can I do
now?" I read something that lets me know we are keeping up the fight
to get her on the correct meds. You are a definite help, heaven sent.
Don't stop. Thanks.
When I was reading the emails and newsletters, yes it did help me a
lot. I was better able to understand his moods and triggers and things
like that. Thanks for all your help.
-Terry Gleba, Florida
I need all the help I can get to gather information. Keep up the
-Terry St Pierre
Your course has helped me tremendously. It made me realize obvious
things that I've overlooked and random things such as how bipolar disorder
really isn't as uncommon as people think. You have helped me a lot. Thank
you David Oliver!
Whenever, I get your e-mails, they give me hope of being a survivor
of this disease. Everyday I want to cry because I don't know what to do,
but when I see your e-mails and information you give, it truly makes a
difference in my everyday life. Thank you for being the person that you
Dear David I was just writing to let you know that the information
you have given me is very insightful and don't think that you are wasting
your time because you are not. I appreciate it greatly and the person that
wrote the email to you must not really need the information or else they
would really be more appreciative. keep up the good work i think you are
wonderful for what you do.
Dear David, I need to take this opportunity to thank you for all
your help. You have helped my understanding of my wife's condition and
tools to help her the best way I can. You have taught me to be prepared,
what to look for, and some things to expect. You have been a blessing to
me. Thank you for sharing your insights as well as all your life
I really appreciate the emails and rest assured that it's NOT a
waste of time. Anyone at all educated in bipolar should be thankful for
any additional information they can get from any source. This is a
life-long battle and education is the weapon to fight it with. YOU may
just be providing the information that enables someone to see bipolar in
themselves or especially to recognize bipolar in someone they love. You're
doing a great public service.
Your help is of utmost importance to me, and is so appreciated.
Thanks again so much for your efforts.
- Ginger GLASHLEY
Dear David: I found you insights very helpful. Thank you so much.
Your bipolar-news has helped me a lot. Although I am not bipolar
your articles helped to better understand the problem in two people I care
about. Thank you and God bless you...keep up the good articles.
-Thecla St Romain
While the issues associated with bipolar disorder are typically
approached from a clinical perspective, family members, particularly those
responsible for care of their relatives, are often tasked with the
challenge of meeting their financial and other day-to-day needs. This
guide provides a practical, easy-to-follow strategy for family members who
are charged with the care of their relatives and their affairs. Although
there are no easy solutions, this strategy provides unique insight into
the care of and management of bipolar disorder from the layman's
-Stefanie C. Nicholas, MSW
Mr. Oliver thank you for the information you have sent me it has
helped me a great deal.
Dave, I am so grateful that you have brought this information to
light So many of us have been hiding in darkness. I'm sure that the
information that you so compassionately compiled will literally save
-Sharon of NYC
Thank you David for enlightening me as much as you can on this disease.
I have been inspired to try and do as much as I can to help myself,
because doctors don't know everything. Again, much gratitude is owed to
you, for helping me stay alive! Best wishes, and I look forward to hearing
from you. It is sooooooo good to know someone actually cares, and he is
from another country.
Thank you for your notes. You are a dear. Everything you've sent has
been helpful. Many blessings as you continue your great work!
-Lorie M Donaldson
Dear David: What I always think about you is that you are an
incredible good man. You have been an excellent friend with priceless
information by the way that extra information increases my knowledge and I
could give that information to some others who needs to know about it.
Thanks a lot!!!!!
- Maria Teresa
Dear Dave, Your materials are terrific. Reading through your
resource information already makes me feel better about the task at hand.
(Our son has not yet been formally diagnosed although he agrees that he
needs help and does have an appointment with a psychiatrist.) Thanks for
your quick delivery and for having taken your time to write the
information down in such a coherent manner.
-B. Foley, Chiefland, FL
I have recently been diagnosed with bipolar disorder. I ordered
David's course for my boyfriend since he was my only support system that I
had. Not only did David's course help him it also helped me.
It gave him more information on what the disorder was, what to
expect, how to plan for an episode, how to handle my affairs if I ever had
to be hospitalized, and so much more. He was much more confident about
talking to the doctors after reading the information. He was better
educated to ask questions that we would have never even known to ask.
Before David's course we were not even sure if he should be going to the
doctor with me. Now we know what we should be doing.
It gave me all the information I needed and questions I needed to
ask to make sure that I picked the right therapist, the right doctor, and
the right medical staff treating me.
I am one of the luckier ones. I have a mental illness but I am not
afraid to get help. In fact I invite it any time I can because I do not
want to be like this anymore. I have put a lot of effort in to finding as
much information as I can for myself and my family but David's course gave
me information that I never even thought to look for. This is the best
investment I could have ever made for myself and my family. Thanks again.
I have been just recently diagnosed with bipolar. grrrrrrrr, it is
just frustrating. But, so many of your thoughts and particulars.... well,
hit the spot. Thank you, for your time, and just caring for people. It has
helped. you really must care for people.
Dear Dave; I just wanted to send you an E-mail to first of all
thank-you for all of the lifesaving info that you have sent me about
bipolar disorder. Every since I have been receiving information about
bipolar from you, I feel more and more inspired. I also feel like I am not
David, Just a big Thank You. I know sometimes people delete their
e-mails without even reading them. You have been a great source of
information for me. Thank you so much for the information i receive from
you daily. Because of you I have found the strength to persevere where my
daughter's bipolar is concerned.
Thank you David for ALL you do......wish there were more people like
you dedicated to educating EVERYONE on Bi-polar. YOU deserve the biggest
gold star available!!!!!
My Dad used to have this thing he did....... a man devoted to
God......he would take one finger......put it up to his mouth....lick
it.....and make an imaginary mark on a table/slate.....God's
table/slate.....giving you a mark for a good deed.....one for the
record......one that counts...in God's book...so to speak.......he always
had a huge smile on his face when he did this.......often as not.......he
didn't even say anything......he would just look at you....or I at
him......and he would do this....no matter where you were......an unspoken
thing.....I will ALWAYS remember this!
You get one of those marks! Biggest Hugs to you......hope your
having a wonderful day! :) Blessings in Love, Peace & Good Health!
David Oliver has touched many lives and will continue to do so in
the future. Recently I received his Bipolar Supporters Course which I must
admit at first I was very skeptical however after receiving the material I
was impressed with the amount of research that went into it. The
information was helpful and could be easily applied to any situation. Also
a tape came along with the course that was so easy to understand and made
things very clear. Also I filled out my free consultation certificate and
within a short period of time this energetic professional fun to talk to
person calls me and addresses my concerns which made it so personal. He is
without a doubt on the cutting edge and currently working hard on a free
bipolar mini course and a free resource page and creating a system to send
out free bipolar news updates. Do not hesitate, get the facts and the help
you need. David has proved there is support so take advantage of this
offer and his valuable time while he is available and his course which can
make your life easier. He is a breath of fresh air giving individuals
choices and hope for the future. You will not regret making a choice to
better understand bipolar and in fact it scares me to think how close I
came to not receiving this valuable course. Choose to live a better life
because all you have to lose is confusion and frustration and the feeling
that no one cares or understands. David cares and understands what you are
dealing with. That is what I personally believe. I hope I have convinced
someone to get the help they need.
I am a nurse with bipolar. I found your course by doing an Internet
search on "bipolar." You sent the information I ordered
promptly. You were available per phone or Email to answer my questions. I
found the materials to be thorough and very appropriate for any person
supporting a loved one who is bipolar. The audio-tape was especially
meaningful. David's course is well worth the cost. What is it worth to see
a loved one stable and receiving necessary support and community benefits?
-Mary E. McPheron
Mr. Oliver, There are no words to tell you how much you have helped
my family. Your course has given us new hope for our son.
Dear David, Where have you been all my life??? Your information is
invaluable. Thank you so much.
The Bipolar Supporters Manual by David Oliver is a valuable new
resource for people with this illness, and their family and friends. My
husband suffered from this disorder for years before it was finally
diagnosed. I felt like I was living with Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. Our
finances were a mess and his mood swings could be unbearable at times.
This guide helps individuals and family members come to terms with the
diagnosis; recognize early warning signs of manic or depressive episodes;
cope with triggers for mood swings; manage medication problems and family
and work issues; and learn to collaborate effectively with doctors and
therapists. I found the Bipolar Supporters Manual by David Oliver to be
informative and thorough. It gave the information in an easy to read and
well put together format.
-Marlene Hamilton, Oliver B.C. Canada
Thank you for your emails concerning bi-polar disorder. It is I who
am bi-polar, but not experiencing the extremes you have described. I found
your course very useful. There are differences between the Canadian and
American medical system which make it somewhat easier for me to get the
assistance I need. I was looking for pitfalls to watch out for, and you
showed me a number of them. I would say that your course is very complete.
However, since I do not experience the severe situations which you have
described, I am unable to offer assistance. You have covered more than I
DAVID, THANKS FOR ALL THE INFO AND STORIES ABOUT YOUR MOM IT HAS
REALLY HELPED ME. I AM THE ONE WITH BI-POLAR. I GOT DIAGNOSED WITH
BI-POLAR 2, 2 MONTHS AGO. THEY MISDIAGNOSED ME FOR 6 MONTHS. BUT I AM ON
TRACK NOW KINDA. I AM DOING THIS BY MYSELF. AND ITS REALLY HARD SO ALL
YOUR INFO HELPS A LOT. THANK YOU SINCERELY
Dear David, The bipolar mini-course was exceptional in its content
and insight. Having shared it with my husband, he also appreciated your
information. Since problems have run in my family, it was a gentle
reminder of what sufferers of bipolar disorder face, and family advice on
how to deal with the aspects. Thank you so much for your time and help,
and for caring enough to share this information.
-Laura K., Pompano Beach, FL
Hi, David -- I really enjoy reading your sessions. They are
excellent. I am looking for information about bipolar sufferers to share
news or story to help me understand how and why I have to deal with
bipolar myself. Anyway, I do really enjoy reading yours!!!
Hello Mr. Oliver, I truly found your seminar , helpful and
inspirational in so many ways it has been a truly powerful eye opener.
Thank you for the service and I whole heartedly recommend it to anyone in
need of information about bi-polar and it's consequences.
Hi Dave, I already ordered your course, received it, and I'm using
it. I must add that one of the most important things, other than the
course, is your feedback. When you know that there's someone there to
answer your questions, it gives you a feeling of security. You have no
idea how helpful you have been to me each time you have given me feedback
regarding one of my concerns. It's as though I were not alone and you were
holding my hand comforting me and reassuring me that all will be all
right. I really do thank you.
David, I just got done reading the Bipolar Manual and I wanted to
thank you for writing it and sharing your personal experience. I have
never seen one source of so much information on bipolar in one place. Not
only was this a great manual, it was easy to read and understand.
Your manual has helped me get more insight on bipolar disorder and
it also has helped me to better understand the illness. Because of your
manual, I feel better equipped to help my loved one whereas before I felt
like there was no hope. Not only do I know what to do and how to react, I
feel if I forget to something, I can refer back to the manual for help.
David, I can't thank you enough for what you've done for me through
