*below: above threshold 1:22 2:19 0:21

Absolute Risk (probability of being above threshold post-treatment) 0.47 0.06 0.24
Relative Risk compared to Routine management (95% CIs) 1 (reference value) 0.13 (0.02 -0.91) 0.5 (0.18-1.4)
  1. *For frequency analysis, BDI-II scores ≥14 were classed as 'above-threshold'
