VERY much so. Jackie has strong hallucinations from her overuse of steroids throughout the movie. At the end there’s also a very strange scene (which is supposed to sort of be a metaphor i guess and not reality) Jackie grows to be a giant, and Lou follows. It’s weird.

yes, it’s a common theme in the show and part of most things to do with the Lonely. It’s most prominent in seasons 4 and 5, especially episodes 159, 170, and 181.

The main character fully dissociates after a particularly brutal event, ignoring everyone that is freaking out and walking alone through a hallway. Sound fades out as well.

Dissociation plays a major role in the story. It is constantly present and may be triggering. The main character suffers from what is heavily implied to be dissociative amnesia.

A major plot point of Night In The Woods is that Mae experiences dissociation/derealization. It's covered in extreme detail, even having a scene meant to depict such an episode happening to Mae personally.

Walter, to avoid having to explain where he was, fakes a fugue state. He pretends that he disassociated from stress and claims to have no memories.

Another instance, when Jesse and Jane do drugs, the scenes are shot in such a way to suggest they are "untethered" or "floating." This is particularly when they shoot heroin.

In "Born Under A Bad Sign," Sam has a week he can't remember where he was apparently running around and doing things he doesn't remember. It seems very similar to a dissociative episode, and could be triggering to some viewers.
