Brief Summary:
Moderately to severely depressed subjects will be randomized to the "Control Group," who will receive care as usual, or the "CBT Group," who will receive care as usual in addition to the manualized course of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT).

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Depression Behavioral: Usual Standard of Care Behavioral: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Condition (CBT) Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
Participants assigned to the CBT condition will receive the usual standard of care during an inpatient psychiatric hospitalization. This includes but is not limited to medication management, group therapy, and individual therapy. If a patient is randomly assigned to the enhanced CBT group, manualized CBT, including a sequence of sessions that builds upon prior sessions and planned exercises, including worksheets and journal entries.The training M.D., who is a treating physician on HCC-10, will also intermittently and randomly observe the CBT sessions to ensure the manual properly is being followed. Although the control condition may contain elements of CBT as per the clinician completing the therapy, it is not manualized, does not include specific exercises to be completed between sessions, and is not a course that builds upon skills from the previous day, as in the CBT condition. Participants assigned to the control condition will receive the usual standard of care during an inpatient psychiatric hospitalization. This includes but is not limited to medication management, group therapy, and individual therapy.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Montgomery-Ashberg Depression Scale (MADRS) [ Time Frame: 15 Minutes ]
    A ten-item clinician-administered questionnaire used to measure the severity of depressive symptoms in patients with mood disorders. The ten questions rate the severity of symptoms on scale of 0 (not present), 2 (mild), 4 (moderate), and 6 (severe). It is designed to be sensitive to change, so is often the scale of choice when interventions, such as psychotherapies, electroconvulsive therapy, or drug trials, are being studied.

  2. Hamilton Rating Scale for Depression (HAM-D) [ Time Frame: 20 Minutes ]
    Clinician-administered semi-structured interview with 17 questions. It is designed to measure the severity of depressive symptoms in patients with a primary depressive illness.

  3. Clinical Global Impression Severity Scale (CGI-S) [ Time Frame: 20 Minutes ]
    Single-item rating scale of the clinician's assessment of the global severity of depressive symptoms in relation to the clinician's total experience with depressed patients. Severity is rated on a 7-point scale ranging from 1 (normal, not at all ill) to 7 (among the most extremely ill)
