Weight loss is a difficult journey. At times many people need to have bariatric surgery to help in their weight loss journey, as well as recovery of their health.
Weight loss has many implications for each individual. It can affect your physical health, mental health, and other aspects of your life.
A person is classified as having obesity and may be referred to as a bariatric patient when they have a body mass index (BMI) that is equal to or greater than 30.
If you have already embarked on the process of being evaluated for bariatric surgery, you will be required to have a psychological/psychiatric evaluation. If you are just considering it, psychological/psychiatric evaluations are helpful to ensure you are addressing all issues that may be factors contributing to your weight challenges.
Here at Yantra, we provide individualized psychiatric evaluations to help you embark on your weight loss journey. Comprehensive assessments are completed and provided to your surgeon to ensure you complete all requirements for your process.
