Obesity and mental disorders are major public health problems that co-occur to a significant degree. They also significantly overlap in phenomenology and response to medications.

In this review, we aim to improve understanding of the relationship between obesity and mental illness and provide practical clinical guidelines for the management of obesity associated with mental disorders.
