The charity commissioned the survey of 4,505 United Kingdom adults to mark the launch of Mental Health Awareness Week, which has a theme this year of body image. Research by the Mental Health Foundation found 13% of adults had experienced suicidal thoughts or feelings because of concerns about their body image.
Body image issues have been shown to affect adult United Kingdom women more than men.
More than half said that celebrities and "influencers" sharing more realistic images of themselves would encourage people to post content that more accurately reflects what they look like in real life, it found. YMCA England and Wales chief executive Denise Hatton said social media presents "a multitude of dangers" for young people.
The research also shows that just one in 10 workers would feel comfortable speaking about psychosis, self-harm, eating disorders, postnatal depression or schizophrenia.
That is compared to 4% of men. We are striving for a society where people do not suffer because of concerns about body image, and where they do not feel pressured to live up to a false sense of perfection.
The charity wants the United Kingdom government to take action, by regulating social media and giving more powers to the Advertising Standards Authority. She said: "This will build on our package of measures to improve the mental health of young people, and directly target the impact of social media and body image on mental wellbeing".

While there have been some positive initiatives, social media companies have frequently been unwilling to take the necessary steps to protect their users from harmful content.
