About Chipur

My name is Bill White, founder and producer of Chipur. If you or someone you care about are struggling with emotional and mental health challenges, I believe you’ll feel comfortable here. So dig in and thank you for stopping by.

‘…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 the content presented on Chipur (as in “feeling chipper”) 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 are my mood, anxiety, and substance dependence experience and recovery.

Though symptoms began when I was a kid, things went full throttle torment as a young adult in 1974. It’s been a ride.

The bottom-line: you hurt and I get it.

Learning, insight, and relief

Bill White Chipur

“I’m glad you’re here.”

If your mission is gaining insight into your challenges and securing relief, Chipur will help you get there. However, if your goal is finding something – anything – to make it all go away, you’re going to be disappointed.

We don’t do cons and cures here.

The content

Chipur has delivered carefully crafted articles to those in need for years. In addition to my work, you’ll catch articles and insight from our growing list of Contributors.

Chipur’s area of specialty has been a progression. In the beginning it was panic attacks and anxiety. Then we went with the mood and anxiety disorders. And now we post about anything having to do with the emotional and mental disorders.

Our subject matter includes biological and psychological foundations, a variety of intervention angles, meds, supplements, devices, and more.

By the way, if you’d like to be a guest writer or Contributor, 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 gucci, 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

There are more.
