- All Therapists Are Muggles has been launched and that can take Justified Trope examples where the character can't get mental health care because no therapists would believe what happened to them.
- A link to Therapy Is for the Weak has also been added to the definition for some of the aversions.
- "Plot powered by crazy": there are a lot of examples saying that a particular work runs on crazy and including therapists would defeat the whole plot (probably this is Dysfunction Junction, narrowly defined?)
- there are also quite a few examples of works where someone who should know better takes advantage of a character's poor mental health at the moment, especially notable if the advantage-taker would normally be subject to duty of care procedures and would therefore probably be found at best Criminally Negligent for not having some sort of psych care and at worst might be found guilty of actually causing intentional distress and harm by using someone's psych vulnerability against them to manipulate them into acting a certain way. I'd put a YKTTW up about this asking for input but didn't get anywhere so probably these can just stay on this trope (or maybe that's what this trope should actually be instead?).
