This study investigated whether patients who receive psychological counselling have better physical and mental well-being post-bariatric surgery. Eighty-eight persons (81 female, 7 male, M age 43.99 years) who had undergone weight loss surgery were recruited from bariatric surgery and obesity online support groups to answer an electronic survey which included the Health Survey Short Form (SF-12) to assess mental and physical well-being. Patients who had attended ≥ 6 counselling sessions after Gastric Sleeve surgery had better physical well-being, compared to those who attended <6 sessions. Patients who attended between one and four psychological counselling sessions had significantly higher mental health component scores. Psychological support for the mental health needs of obese patients post-surgery requires more attention to ensure long-term weight loss success.
