* Zig-zagged in ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice''. Black Canary is a trained therapist, and is shown having sessions with the teens after seriously traumatizing events. When Arsenal begins to suffer from serious issues that have interfered with their missions more than once Nightwing benched him, which is pretty much the same as telling him he's off the team until he can deal with his personal demons.

Although this gets somewhat subverted in that no one thought to have him counseled by Black Canary ''before'' he joined the team, despite it being clear he was still deeply traumatized over [[spoiler: getting kidnapped, having his arm chopped off, being put in cryogenic stasis, replaced with a clone, and thought to be dead by just about everyone]] to the point he actually [[spoiler: tried to murder Lex Luthor for revenge and ''came damn close to doing it''.]]

* Averted in ''[[VideoGame/CorpseParty Corpse Party: Book of Shadows]]'' and ''Blood Drive'', where one character does undergo therapy for the trauma she experienced in the first game. It ends up having the opposite effect of what's intended, since the person whose death traumatized her is RetGone and rather than treating her properly and exploring possible reasons as to why her personality did a complete 180 in her personal life, they try to insist she was just an imaginary friend and end up isolating her further.

* In ''VideoGame/WolfensteinIITheNewColossus'', quite a few of the Resistance are in serious need of therapy, including (but by all means not limited to) B.J, [[spoiler:Grace and Wyatt]]. Justified because they're all wanted fugitives, but also because they live in a world dominated by ThoseWackyNazis, [[TruthInTelevision who in real life]] considered mental illness and disability to be executable offences: if the Nazis of ''Wolfenstein'' are anything like the historical ones, they'd prefer to [[JustShootHim Just Shoot 'Em]] rather than provide treatment.

* Averted in the ''WebAnimation/DCSuperHeroGirls'' comic ''Out of the Bottle''. Harley Quinn, Wonder Woman, Supergirl, and Batgirl all mention that they see therapists. They even mention that it's likely hard to be a superhero without some sort of mental health help.

* Averted in ''VideoGame/GodEater''. Despite the world being post-apocalyptic and trained professionals in any field being a precious resource, it's stated point-blank that new recruit Alicia is on a mental health regimen that includes sessions with a competent therapist. It's even stated that she's so unstable and has such a dodgy background she'd normally be rejected from the God Eater program without a second thought, but since she's compatible with New Type God Arcs it's considered worth the expense.

* Lampshaded in an episode in the English dub of ''Anime/DigimonAdventure02''. When Ken (who joined after a HeelRealization, having been the most insane villain they'd faced yet - yes, surpassing the MonsterClown) suggests that Wormmon talk to a therapist about his problems, Wormmon asks why ''he'' didn't talk to someone before [[VideoGameCrueltyPotential becoming the Digimon Emperor]]?
** It becomes FridgeBrilliance when one takes ValuesDissonance into consideration; traditional Japanese culture tends to not mesh well with therapy.

* [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] in ''ComicBook/TheWalkingDead''; so far, no member of the group past or present has been a therapist. For all we know, there might not be any therapists left.
** Lampshaded by Sergeant Ford in issue 61.

* Averted in the ''WesternAnimation/{{Arthur}}'' episode "Shelter From The Storm". The Brain starts having anxiety and becomes increasingly stressed after a hurricane hits their town. His parents send him to a therapist, voiced by Creator/IdinaMenzel, to help his issues. After the end of his session he thinks he's "cured" but is told by his therapist that dealing with anxiety takes time, made obvious by the fact Brain is {{trigger}}ed by the rustling of wind. She teaches him techniques to deal with his anxiety and in the end he confronts his fears.

* Played literally straight in "Series/TheTribe" as it's a world without adults. And a very large portion of the cast could seriously do with one.
