Added DiffLines:

* Averted ''hard'' in ''Literature/MagicExLibris'' where every Porter sees a therapist, and the therapist is a major character.

Added DiffLines:

* Completely averted in the original ''ComicBook/SuicideSquad''. Amanda Waller, despite her ornery and manipulative behavior, actually made sure Belle Reve Penitentiary had a full staff, including scientists, therapists, and even a priest, who were important side characters in the first half of the series.

* Jason of ''ComicStrip/FoxTrot'' once took out three months of his teacher's therapy scrawling an needlessly long extrapolation of a formula on a blackboard and Andy mentions having gone to a therapist a few times, probably because of dealing with her family.

* In ''Webcomic/SomethingPositive'' there are many cases of this, sometimes lampshaded, but the one that stuck out most for me is when Davan never gets help after being raped by a woman he was attracted to. Sadly this is probably TruthInTelevision for many rape victims, especially male ones, and especially when the rapist is a woman.

* ''Webcomic/Level30Psychiatry'' is naturally an aversion. The whole dang thing is about video game characters getting therapy for all the weird stuff they get into.



* {{Subverted| trope}} in ''Westeranimation/{{The Tick}}'' with Big Shot, a {{parody}} of {{nineties antihero}}es in general and Comicbook/{{The Punisher}} in particular. In "The Tick vs The Ideamen", he is a clearly unstable maniac who riddles random things with bullets until they resemble skulls; the Tick warns him that "Guns and superheroes don't mix. Seek professional help." When he reappears in "The Tick vs The Tick", he has been to therapy and, while he still has anger issues, he has them under control and is overall a calm, stable man who even invites the other Tick to attend his group sessions to work out his own issues.

* In ''Westeranimation/{{TheAvengers:Earth'sMightiestHeroes}}'', Hank Pym fakes his death, then goes around with a new personality and calling himself Yellowjacket, who is much more ruthless and prone to violence. Everyone is aware that is unhealthy but no one mentions therapy.

* One episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheTransformers'', "Webworld", was all about the Decepticons finally getting sick of Galvatron being insane and sending him to a planet whose hat is curing the mentally ill. Galvatron just ends up ravaging the planet.

* Averted with a vengeance in ''Webcomic/MaterialGirl''. As the story gets darker and the CerebusSyndrome kicks in, Noah's parents go from joking about taking him to a therapist to forcibly strapping him into the car and dragging him to one.

However, because of the MaybeMagicMaybeMundane nature of Noah's crossdressing behavior, even the therapist is stumped.

* In 'ComicBook/BatmanNoMansLand'' we see a gang member interviewing individuals begging for admittance to their shelter in the hopes of protection, shelter, and sustenance. One of the people being interviewed is a therapist, who finally sums up his profession thusly, "I help people who don't like each other get along." The gang member's eyes light up and he grins happily, "Oh yeah! We need that!"

* ''Franchise/StarTrek'' tried to avoid this somewhat by instituting the position of "Ship's Counselor", but still ran into it on occasion. ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'' and ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'' had excuses though: Ezri Dax was still in training when she was assigned as counselor, while Captain Janeway said in an early episode that ''Voyager'' hadn't been expected to need one (being that the mission they were ''supposed'' to have took place well within shouting distance of a major starbase, Deep Space 9).

Chakotay (with his VisionQuest), Neelix (as Morale Officer), and Tuvok (using Vulcan meditation techniques) usually take up the role.

* This is played straight later in the Gensokyo20XX series, with the latter half taking place in the aftermath of nuclear war, in which case there was no way to deal with a then mentally ill Ran and very mentally ill Reimu, especially so in the latter case since finding a therapist would mean sending her to a BedlamHouse, which are feared for due reason. This is subverted earlier in the series with Yukari, in which they aided in her recovery.
