* Also averted ''very'' hard in ''Literature/{{Room}}''. When Ma and Jack escape, the police take them to a private psychiatric facility and they both receive plenty of counseling. Dr. Clay, their therapist, is TheShrink version 3 and a well-developed character. This doesn't happen in the film; they just get dumped back in Ma's childhood home with nothing more to be said.

* In ''ComicBook/{{Runaways}}'', therapists probably ''do'' exist to help the kids deal with the fact that their parents were evil and one of their friends betrayed them, but the team avoids them due to their distrust of authority figures. This comes back to bite them in the ass in the last arc, as the team's long-simmering psychological issues all boil over and create a chain reaction that breaks them apart.
* Used egregiously in ''ComicBook/TheVision2015''; when the Avengers learn that Victor Mancha is a drug addict whose addiction has grown to the point that he's stealing from them in order to feed his habit, instead of getting him any counseling, they blackmail him into spying on Vision and his family. To say that this does not end well for anyone is a massive understatement.

* In ''[[WebComic/WalkyVerse It's Walky!]]'', the lack of mental health treatment for the Abductees is palpable and, in the end, tragic. The idea that the best way to help some 600-odd young adults with superhuman powers who have been repeatedly been abducted by aliens, experimented on, subjected to [[CoolAndUnusualPunishment bizarre forms of torture]], and then had most (but not quite all) of the their memories of the events erased, is to separate them from friends and family, arm them with high-tech alien weaponry, give them secretive police powers, and let them loose on their abductors, should have been enough to make the original Big Boss' [[YourHeadAsplode head explode]] at the thought of the liability he'd be taking on. The subject did get a few [[LampShadeHanging lampshades hung on it]], but it really was incredibly reckless by RealLife standards.

* Despite the apparent lack of them in the movieverse, Dr. Aphra of the ''ComicBook/StarWarsDarthVader'' series is mentioned to have seen one as a child who diagnosed her with psychological problems as a result of her estranged relationship with her father and the trauma of the Clone Wars. Didn't really seem do her much good considering the company she keeps.

* ''Series/LukeCage2016'': Averted with Misty Knight. After roughing up Claire due to her near-death at the hands of Diamondback, Inspector Ridley makes her sit down with a competent police psychiatrist, and he gets her to admit her problems and deal with them.

* Averted in one episode of ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' in season three, when Buffy was sent to see a school counsellor...only for him to wind up dead in the same episode. Buffy goes through ''a lot'' of shit that would mess anyone up for life; killing demons for a living, her entire relationship with Angel (which was at best emotionally abusive, and at worst dived right into stalker territory which she thought was perfectly OK) which lead to a lot of issues with Riley, her mother's illness, dying and coming back to life, her mutually abusive relationship with Spike... Yet she never got any counselling or therapy. The only reasonable excuse is that no one would believe her and think she's crazy (and considering she actually got put away by her parents at one point for trying to come clean...) but they didn't even ''try'' to find someone who knew about the demon world, or may have even been half demon themselves. Giles was employed by a whole organization of people who could've easily found someone to help.
** Not just Buffy. The entire Scoobie Gang needed therapy at one stage or another. The entirety of season six could've been avoided if they'd actually sought out counselling.
** They try to avert this again in season seven when Buffy becomes a school counsellor. But considering everything she's been through without getting any help and not exactly dealing with any of it in a responsible manner (e.g. having rough sex with Spike and beating him up in the previous season), it really doesn't work. She's simply not qualified, both professionally and mentally.
