Technically there isn't, because the mouse is barely clinging to life, but its crushed body is briefly shown which can be very triggering. The mouse is quickly revived by John Coffey's healing powers, so the graphic part is not very long.

One of the execution scenes gets truly horrific due to things going wrong and the condemned being burned alive in the electric chair as the result of a guard deciding to be sadistic with him.

There isn't really much "gore" necessarily, but there are some points with blood, burn injuries, and Wild Bill's death is quite graphic and bloody.

There is a quick scene change from a heavy emotional scene to a sudden cut to a gory dead person. It is not a jump scare but it could be suddenly scary because of the quick mood change and unpleasent sight.

One of the guards (Percy) wet themselves when he gets threatened with rape by one of the inmates. Percy is a very disturbing man and has been nothing but cruel up until this point. As a result of his cruelty, everyone mocks him for wetting himself instead of taking the grave threat seriously.

It's not really copaganda, but the cops are the main characters. Their job isn't portrayed in a positive or negative light but they are made empathetic characters. I believe all of the cops are revealed to have left their jobs at the end.

Whilst not therapy, per se, if watching a person being electrocuted bothers you, the several prolonged (and, in one case, vindictive) scenes of people being executed via the electric chair will be very unpleasant for you.

It isn't outright said, but it could be surmised that Paul in the future has PTSD. When he sees the movie John watched before his death, he panics and has to leave the room.

Parts of the story are set in an old folks home and the wife of the director experiences memory loss and extreme change in disposition on a day to day basis. While it is not explicitly stated, it shares similar themes.

No, but there is a scene that has a similar vibe: right before Del is executed, Percy tells Del that the Mouseville that Paul promised to take the mouse to for him was all a fairytale they made up to make him happy, and it upsets Del greatly.
