THE IMPACT OF SOCIAL MEDIA ON MENTAL HEALTH
It's great that you've had a think of some dissertation topics that you like, as this can be the hardest part!
I recommend looking through your core textbooks suggested by your lecturers at attitudes towards mental health, and social media as it 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 and provide guidance on both topics.
You can do some reading about topics of mental health you're interested in as well as social media. Have a look at articles/ study's (look on your uni library resource, Google scholar etc) to increase your understanding about the topics to help you decide.
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.
