What is the Whitepill? 
The Whitepill is a system that intends to guide a person through a path of self-actualisation or catharsis, in order to be able to live a life of contentment, if not outright happiness. It works as a guide, especially for those suffering in our current society, who feel their lives are empty and lack meaning or purpose.
This is a “pill” due to the fact that these ideas can be “swallowed”, changing one’s perspective. For a thorough explanation read this.

Is the Whitepill only for those depressed or lacking purpose?
There are already many refined systems or philosophies out there to lead a “good” life (e.g., Buddhism, Stoicism, Taoism, Epicureanism , etc), but they all require heavy changes for someone to adapt them, especially for the average person living in the 21st century. We live in a society where depression is skyrocketing, suicides increase every year, and a top elite keeps the masses subjugated and living in misery; it is not easy to find the willpower to build a new lifestyle from scratch. Therefore, the Whitepill attempts to be pragmatic instead of idealistic, giving concrete and simple examples to attempt to achieve joy in life.

Why white specifically?
White is created in additive color theory by mixing the primary colors (red, green and blue), thus white is metaphorically the unification of information from other “pill” systems, like the redpill, bluepill, blackpill, etc. The name isn’t important at the end of the day.
