In brief: Evaluation in order
It would be good to have your suspicion of a mild depression evaluated first.
If you do have a major depression that is mild, psychotherapy can be just as good as medication treatment. If you choose the medication route and if you have not taken an antidepressant before, the ssri class is a prudent start.
