Duplicate Keywords - List #25 (Proposals for Permanent Merger and Auto-Conversion) (mental health keywords)

Here is the next installment of my lists of proposed keywords for permanent merger and auto-conversion.

I am posting this for fellow contributors to review first and raise any objections or questions. I will wait at least seven days before changing this post to a "problem" post and asking IMDb staff to make the proposed changes.

This list is in honor of Mental Health Awareness Month 2022, which is about to come to an end in the United States in a few days.

Finally, for this list I am breaking my normal rule of only posting keywords or sets of keywords that are currently assigned to at least 50 titles. When it comes to permanent changes on a mass scale, I feel it's important to have uniformity and consistency across a set of related keywords as a whole, so I have included a few keywords with less than 50 titles as an exception to my normal rule.

The mergers and auto-conversions should be made in the direction of the arrows.

You're merging mentally-unstable-man into   mentally-ill-boy.

You probably meant mentally-ill-man

Why would mental-illness-as-subject be needed in addition to mental-health or mental-illness?

@Peter_pbn​ I considered the same question as I prepared this list. I was on the fence about what to do with the keyword "mental-illness-explored." The obvious intent of whomever created this keyword is to apply it to films that focus on mental illness as a primary subject or theme.

I typically only use "-as-subject" keywords for plot points that are otherwise prohibited as keywords on IMDb or might be confusing as a standalone keyword, things like "movies-as-subject" and "tv-show-as-subject," plus words or terms that otherwise qualify as genres on IMDb, like "war-as-subject" and "crime-as-subject." 

Some contributors like to use "-as-subject" suffixes a little more broadly. For example, there are keywords like "media-as-subject," "science-as-subject," "women-as-subject," even "breathing-as-subject."

For "mental-illness-as-subject," I could go either way on this one. Since you brought it up, I will change the list to merge "mental-illness-explored" into "mental-illness."

After all, the more "as-subject" keywords are created, the more we move down a slippery slope. If there were "-as-subject" keywords for every topic that is "explored" or focused on in films and shows, that would result in a lot of additional keywords that are arguably unnecessary. 

The best counterargument is that there is no easy way to filter or sort keyword searches to look for keywords that are not just basic plot points, but rather themes or primary subject matter within the film or show. (The closest approximation I can think of to do this is a title search that uses a concept  in both the plot field and the keyword field.) 

But since the vast majority of contributors have not added "as-subject" keywords like this, I am fine with not doing so here. Again, I will change the list.

Looks like IMDb staff have already made a lot of progress merging the keywords on this list. Thank you!

I just added one more minor keyword to the list:

mentally-disturbed-mother (3 titles)

Edit: also, it looks like this keyword may have been skipped (so far):

pretending-to-be-insane (3 titles)
