My name is Bill White, founder and producer of Chipur. Welcome, and thank you for stopping by. If you’re struggling with symptoms of depression, anxiety, or bipolarity, you’ll find comfort here. Why Chipur? Let’s talk…
‘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…’
Getting us started, I want you to know that all of what’s presented on Chipur comes from a powerful combo perspective.
I have a master’s degree in professional counseling and have worked in the emotional/mental health field since 2004.
Likely more important is my personal mood and anxiety experience and ultimate recovery. Though symptoms began when I was a kid, things went full throttle disorder as a young adult in 1974. And I’ll toss in beginning a recovery from a severe alcohol use disorder ten years later.
Why Chipur? Because you hurt and I get it.
Content, not cures
If your mission is gaining insight into your mood and anxiety symptoms and securing relief, I believe Chipur’s content will help you accomplish both.
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.
Chipur offers hundreds of articles that I’ve carefully crafted and posted over the years. And you’ll catch the occasional guest post. Hey, if you’d like to write one, I’ll be happy to take a look.
The subject matter include the biology and psychology of the mood and anxiety disorders, as well as a variety of intervention angles, meds, supplements, and much more.
Oldies but goodies
The very first Chipur article is dated July 28, 2009. 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
Okay, Chipur is my baby, so you may be thinking, “Of course he’s going to say it’s all that.” 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.
