Bariatric Support Group
Several sessions scheduled throughout the month.
After bariatric surgery, it is very common for patients to experience a slight to significant sense of depression. Though often temporary, these feelings can persist. The Bariatric Support Group of Holy Name provides emotional support for patients who have undergone Gastric Band, Gastric Bypass, and Sleeve-Gastrectomy and their families. Topics of discussion include getting back on track, mindfulness, the role of exercise after surgery, body image, self-sabotaging behaviors, nutrition, and dealing with significant others. The bariatric support group also serves as a buddy system for patients, encouraging participation in events like exercise or attending support groups.
