But other times, they fall SUPER short, and have some pretty problematic moments that could actually be really harmful to kids.

Anyone remember when Sam literally checked herself into a psych ward on iCarly because she liked Freddie?

There were also some pretty bad stereotypes in the psych ward that were played for laughs. Mental health isn't a joke!
