Dysthymia, sometimes referred to as mild, chronic depression, is less severe and has fewer symptoms than major depression. With Dysthymia, the depression symptoms can linger for a long period of time, often two years or longer. In children, Dysthymia sometimes occurs along with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), behavioral or learning disorders, anxiety disorders, or developmental disabilities. Abnormal functioning in brain circuits or nerve cell pathways that connect different brain regions regulating mood are also thought to be involved in causing Dysthymia. Major life stressors, chronic illness, medications, and relationship or work problems may also increase the chances of Dysthymia in people biologically predisposed to developing depression.
