Do not offer antidepressants routinely for people with persistent subthreshold depressive symptoms or mild depression but consider them for, or refer for an assessment, people with:
-initial presentation of subthreshold depressive symptoms that have been present for a long period (typically at least 2 years) or
-subthreshold depressive symptoms or mild depression that persist(s) after other interventions or
-a past history of moderate or severe depression or
-mild depression that complicates the care of a physical health problem.
