Obesity is a major physical health problem resulting in diabetes, hypertension, cardiovascular disease, joint disorders and early death. Emotional problems of depression, anxiety, and embarrassment are suffered along with limitations in social, family, and marital relationships. The tool of bariatric surgery to empower persons to better face and gain control of their weight problem is now available in the Tallahassee area.

Many insurance companies provide coverage for this procedure and require a mental health assessment to help assure that persons are good candidates who will be able to be compliant with the necessary behavioral changes to attain success.

At Impact Behavioral Health, we are offering these assessments. Our assessments encompass all of the areas of a general mental health assessment plus special attention to additional areas.

The cost of our assessment is: Initial Session – $200, Second Session $110, and Third Session $110
