The New York TBI Model System at Mount Sinai School of Medicine is seeking people who have had a traumatic brain injury and are experiencing depression. The research study will evaluate the effectiveness of the drug Zoloft, an anti-depressant, in helping individuals who are depressed after brain injury.

To be in this study you must be suffering from depression and be willing to try this medication for a period of 12 weeks. Participants will be randomly assigned, to receive either Zoloft or a sugar pill that contains no medicine. Then you will be asked to visit Mount Sinai every two weeks to monitor whether changes occur in your level of depression. You will be paid for your time.
