We are recruiting individuals who suffer from current major depression and generalized anxiety disorder together. The study is testing the effectiveness of combined cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and medication, seroquel XR (quetiapine), for 16 weeks. All participants will undergo psychiatric evaluation and medical examination for free. Everyone will receive 16 weekly sessions of CBT plus either seroquel XR or placebo.
