This article reviews the literature on cognitive-behavioral therapy for insomnia in adults and adolescents with depression. Recent research has expanded on previous research, which established that sleep problems are an important predictor of depression and that sleep problems are associated with more severe depression, more suicidality, and worse outcomes for treatment of depression. The relationship between sleep problems and depression is complex, likely bidirectional, and impactful. To further improve the lives of patients with depression who experience insomnia, it will be important to investigate which patients will do better in a sequential versus concomitant approach.
