Why Chipur?

how to manage anxiety

My name is 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 you’ve come to a good place.

‘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 powerful “combo” perspective. First of all, I’m a mental health professional. But likely more important is my decades long management of my own mood and anxiety disorders. And let’s toss in uninterrupted sobriety since 1984.

Thing is, 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 learning and sharing as you work hard toward becoming more comfortable.

What I’m saying is, there are no “miracles” or “cures” touted here. I wouldn’t do that to either of us.

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 articles about meds, supplements, assorted treatment and coping angles, and much more.

Speaking of the articles, here’s 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 chuckle at how they look. I mean, there are a variety of errors and even some not-so-hot writing.

It used to bother me, but not anymore. Fact is, it gives me evidence as to how far I’ve come. Isn’t that what it’s all about? We stand tall as we acknowledge our past troubles. And do our best to better ourselves in the immediate.

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
