ABSTRACT
The article focuses on a study, which assesses the shape of the relationship between body mass index (BMI) and distress, suicidal ideation and self-reported mental ill-health conditions in a huge population sample. It is concluded that the study offered no support for the hypothesis of increased mental ill-health issues in the underweight.
