Cyclothymia, or cyclothymic disorder, isa mild form of bipolar disorder (manic depression).

A person with cyclothymia will have a history of mood swings that range from mild depression to emotional highs.

Most people's symptoms are mild enough that they do not seek mental health treatment, so cyclothymia often goes undiagnosed and untreated.

However, the mood swings can disrupt your personal and work relationships. If you think you have cyclothymia, it may help tosee your GP or seek advice from a mental health resource.

Cyclothymia can progress into Bipolar disorder and people often don't seek treatment until this late stage.
