Why Chipur?

What Can I Do About Depression

Hi, I’m Bill White, founder and producer of Chipur. Welcome, and thank you for stopping-by. If you’re wondering what you can do about your mood and/or anxiety circumstances – or someone else’s – you’ve come to a good place. Here’s more…

Hi Bill, I’m Janey from Australia. I have suffered from major episodes of depression/anxiety for around 20 years. I simply want to say what a goldmine Chipur is! It is the most sensible, logical and do-able bunch of information on mental health I have come across.

All of the articles on Chipur come from a unique and powerful “combo” perspective. The first component is I’m a mental health professional. The second piece? I continue to manage the mood and anxiety disorders with which I’ve been “blessed” for decades. And let’s add uninterrupted sobriety since 11.3.84 to the mix.

Been there, done that, people. I get it. 

If you’re looking for mood and anxiety disorder sharing, learning, and relief, I believe you’ll find Chipur’s content a fit. And always keep in mind, Chipur is but a resource and exchange reservoir – a place where you can do some sharing and learning in your overall effort to secure relief.

No “miracles” or “cures” touted here, okay? It’s just not how I roll.

Chipur offers hundreds of articles that I’ve carefully crafted and posted over the years. And you’ll catch the occasional guest post. The subject matter is diverse, including pieces on the biology and psychology of depression, anxiety, and bipolarity – as well as supplements/meds, and just plain old “feelin’ better” pieces.

Speaking of the articles, how ’bout a quick sidebar? The first Chipur piece is dated 7.28.09, so I’ve been at this for a number of years. Every so often I look back at the earlier articles and, at times, chuckle at how they look. Dang, there are font errors, images that show an error message because my account with an old image host expired, not-so-hot writing, missing images, and more.

Sure, repair is an ongoing process, but I really have no issues with the boo-boos showing. Gives me evidence of how far I’ve come. And isn’t that the way it’s supposed to be? We stand tall as we acknowledge our past troubles. And do our best to better ourselves along the way.

Okay, Chipur is my baby so you may be thinking “Of course he’s going to say Chipur is all that.” Good point. So how ’bout just one testimonial…

Hi Bill, I’m Janey from Australia. I have suffered from major episodes of depression/anxiety for around 20 years. I simply want to say what a goldmine Chipur is! It is the most sensible, logical and do-able bunch of information on mental health I have come across. At present I am in an episode. The doc has increased my meds so I’m waiting for those to kick in, but in the meantime I am reading articles on your site for around half an hour per day, just to ‘drip feed’ regularly the information to my brain. So I really only wanted to say thanks. I hope you and your family are well.
Kind regards

More, along with some awards? Here ya’ go.

Let’s Go…
Bill
