Original Title: 아임상 및 경증 우울증 자기관리법의 효용성 연구
Authors' recommendations: Through a comprehensive systematic literature review and consensus meeting of experts, the experts agreed that a total of 6 interventions (aromatherapy, bibliotherapy, computerized intervention, light therapy, relaxation and yoga) are proper for use by patients who have subclinical and mild depression. About 70% of the survey responders had experienced symptoms of subclinical depression. Self-care interventions for depression were already in wide use in Korea. However, the pattern of usage was significantly different between mental health professionals and general populations.
