In the show: As of the pilot, no.
In the trailers: Pomni gets several knives thrown at her and stuck in her body in a knife-throwing act, and Ragatha gets tripped by Jax and has a meat cleaver thrown at her head.

The newest member "Pomni" mentions an exit door she'd seen outside the tent, so Caine insists she is hallucinating and there is no exit door. In the end, Caine eventually apologized for "lying about the exit" and admitted there was an exit door that he never really got to finish.

Zooble’s character is made up of many shapes that are pulled apart. She doesn’t seem to be in pain, though, just annoyed.
Also, when Ragatha is glitching, her limbs glitch in ways that look like dislocations. The glitching is painful, but not necessarily the dislocating.

No, but something akin to death (and even worse) happens to one character.
*SPOILERS FOR THE PILOT* At some point before the pilot episode, a character went insane and became permanently altered physically and mentally (essentially resulting in the “death” of their mind and personality). After the others find that this has happened, Caine puts the altered person in the cellar (where others like them are also trapped), removing them from the main cast.

I would say so. The characters are "Trapped in the digital world." Most have gotten used to it, while the protagonist, Pomni, panicks as it was her first few hours in the circus.

The gloink queen has multiple (probably at least 20) eyes along her head which form a bubbly pattern, it’s after pomni opens a bunch of doors and sequentially after three of them fall into the gloink hole (tryphobia is fear of both or either bubbly and holey textures)

No one is explicitly stated to have any specific mental illness, but insanity is a significant theme that is connected to “abstraction” which causes characters to attack others senselessly.

Pomni can't remember her previous life, and it seems that this is equally true for the other formerly-human circus residents. Zooble is a particularly strong case, having no memory of their gender identity.

No, but *SPOILERS* the way the characters talk about Kaufmo’s abstracting mirrors how one would discuss a person who committed suicide, saying they can’t believe he “gave up” and that they expected another mentally unstable character to do it first.

They are in a sort of limbo where Pomni feels like something is off and reality starts breaking and things clip into other objects and glitch, Jax also mentions Cane makes NPCs for the others to play with regularly. Pomni mentions she put on a headset and was teleported to limbo. Everything is presented and mentioned that they are living inside a computer game or simulation of some sort, in a “digital plane” cane also tells pomni she is having “digital hallucinations” but he seems to be lying. There is also cartoon logic (hammer space) and a weird infinitely respecting reality where pomni reenters the same room repeatedly. Pomni gets thrown into the void and seemingly has an existential crisis. They mention that food has no affect on them and they don’t need to eat, it just replicates the sensation of food

there are minor, surface level religious references, like the ringmasters name being "Caine", which connects to the logo "C&A" which is a reference to Cain and Able. the dinner scene at the end is framed like The Last Supper.
