Mental health is huge just now and a dissertation on this topic would only help your job prospects. Best to look at other people's dissertations to see if any interest you and then just do a twist on their research. Thus, find a paper carried out in the US and then propose to carry out similar research in the UK to see if you get the same findings.

I just googled psychology dissertations and found a few - mainly at PhD level but they will give you some ideas for your 'angle'

UCL - An exploration of adolescents’ experiences of mental health
Salford - A biographical narrative study exploring mental ill health through the life course
Iowa State - click on the link and search 'mental health' and you will see dozens of dissertations on the topic

Hiya!

I recommend looking through your core textbooks suggested by your lecturers at the topics you're interested in. This can help fine tune the ideas you already have.

Definitely email your supervisor about your ideas as they can help guide you in the right direction.

You can do some reading about topics of mental health you're interested in, animals and body image articles/ study's (look on your uni library resource, google scholar etc) to increase your understanding about the topics.

I've chosen to use a table to list all the research papers in my dissertation. This means i can easily view their title, their methodology, their findings, their limitations etc. so could be a good method for you to! Once you get a better idea of the existing literature it will help you fine tune your title.
