WSO should have an in-house therapy team

No like a career counselor or career mentor, but if they found someone that we could go to with a whole host of issues that are more catered to this group,  Aka stress, burnout,  relationships, etc.  

I feel like have a therapist that deals with similar people would almost be good for this community.

Yes for therapy partnerships BUT not BetterHelp/TalkSpace/Cerebral/mental health tech startups. I can do a longer post about how exploitative these platforms are and how the quality of services is shit.

Could you actually, that would be really useful. Therapy is something I'm considering somewhat, and I really have no idea where to start, in no small part due to the stigma still attached to it.

Pizz as a therapist:

"just get laid"

Why not just set up a separate forum specifically for burnout/stress/personal-related questions? I personally would love to see less of these woe is me and "how to talk to a grill" threads in Off Topic.

Talking to grills can be terrifying - I recommend starting off with a non-stick skillet. This way you can say awkward stuff and none of it will stick.
