Why Chipur?

My name is Bill White, founder of Chipur. Welcome, and thanks for stopping by. If you’re struggling with depression, anxiety, or bipolar disorder, I think you’ll feel comfortable here. Why Chipur? Dig in…

‘Hi Bill, I’m Emily 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…

Right out of the gate, I want you to know that what’s presented on Chipur comes from a combo perspective.

I have a master’s degree in professional counseling and have worked in the emotional and mental health field since 2004.

Likely more important is my mood and anxiety experience and recovery.

Though symptoms began when I was a kid, things went full throttle disorder as a young adult in 1974. And let’s toss in embarking upon a recovery journey to counter a severe alcohol use disorder 10 years later.

Why Chipur? Because you hurt and I get it.

Insight and relief, not cures

struggling with depression

“I’m not looking for ‘something-anything’ cures. I’m ready to duke it out for insight and relief.”

If your mission is gaining insight into your mood and anxiety experience and securing relief, I believe Chipur’s content will help you get there.

However, if your mission includes finding something – anything – to make it all go away, you’re going to be disappointed.

We don’t do cures here. And that’s because there aren’t any.

You know that, right?

The content

Chipur has brought carefully crafted articles to those in need for years. In addition to my work, you’ll catch the occasional guest post.

The subject matter includes the biology and psychology of the mood and anxiety disorders, a variety of intervention angles, meds, supplements, devices, and more.

By the way, if you’d like to be a guest writer, let me know.

Oldies but goodies

The very first Chipur article is dated July 28, 2009. Funny, I cringe when I see that one of the oldies is catching views.

Though the information is fine, let’s just say my writing, formatting, and image skills have improved over the years. I remodel as I can.

Well, it’s about growth, right?

Don’t just take it from me

So you may be saying to yourself, “Of course he thinks Chipur is all that. It’s his.” Fair enough. Then don’t just take it from me…

Hi Bill, I’m Emily 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
