Teenagers who are overweight or obese are more likely to have considered suicide than those who are a normal weight, according to new research presented at a meeting of the Royal College of Psychiatrists' Child and Adolescent Faculty.

Researchers from the University of Liverpool measured the height and weight of 799 Year 9 students from five comprehensive schools in Cheshire. This was used to calculate each student's body mass index (BMI).
The researchers found that the prevalence of suicidal ideation was 13.3% (11.1% in boys and 15.5% in girls).
