The purpose of this report is to summarize and synthesize recent research evidence on the association between body weight and three indices of psychosocial functioning: bullying, suicide, and self-harm. The guiding research question was whether overweight or obese individuals are more likely to experience injury as a result of these difficulties compared with individuals who are of healthy weight.
