Obesity, defined as body mass index (BMI) ≥ 30 kg/m2, is one of the most important public health problems. Over one billion people are obese, including 650 million adults, which is 13% of the worldwide population, according to the World Health Organization (WHO). Similar to obesity, mental disorders such as depression and anxiety are huge social problems with serious health implications. There are numerous studies proving a strong link between the prevalence of obesity and depressive disorders, and being overweight is also associated with decreased health-related quality of life (HRQoL). Due to the broad negative impact of obesity on a patient’s health, proper treatment is crucial. Currently, the literature describes many methods of treatment such as dietary treatment, pharmacotherapy using glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) analogs, orlistat, naltrexone/bupropion (NB), or finally bariatric surgery. The most commonly used methods of obesity treatment significantly improve the patient’s quality of life and reduce the symptoms of depression and anxiety. The aim of our study was to summarize the knowledge about the impact of known and commonly used methods of obesity treatment (e.g., dietary treatment, bariatric surgery, and pharmacological treatment) on mental health and quality of life. For this purpose, we will try to review the current scientific data, originating from international reports.
