There’s an episode where a man stalks Phoebe thinking it’s her twin sister Ursula, and he continues to do so throughout the episode with Ursula.

Not really but Joey has a girlfriend who jokingly punches his arm a lot. The ‘friends’ make fun of him for being hurt/upset by it because she is very small and he is supposed to be a ‘man.’ Could be upsetting for men who have been subject to domestic violence and been gaslighted on account of their masculinity.

Monica’s mother is really awful at many points. She is very critical of Monica’s weight, considers her to be a failure and strongly prefers Ross. It could be upsetting for anyone with an emotionally abusive parent.

Phoebe starts dating a cop, who gets annoyed with a bird singing outside his apartment window in the morning. Instead of simply scaring it away or closing the window he shoots and kills it. Phoebe breaks up with him pretty quickly.

In two episodes - one is awful and has it throughout. It's the episode where phoebe and Rachel are fighting on who lives with Monica and who lives with Joey.

The other episode is better. It just talks about holding one but doesn't show one. It's the episode where Rachel is scared of the swings.

In the plot of a later episode, there is rape by deceit. Monica and Chandler are fighting, and it is the last die she is ovulating, and they want to conceive a child. Chandler says he does not want their child to be conceived while they're fighting, and Monica appears to respect this, and they make up and have sex. As soon as they're finished, Monica admits she was lying and picks up the fight again. In a later scene it also implied that Chandler has committed rape by deceit when she says "You used to tell girls you were a Kennedy!". The fight is resolved when Joey gaslights Chandler saying "You're a guy and you got to have sex. What are you complaining about?" making a joke out of male rape victims. Overall, it is an episode that has not aged well.
There is also a tailor who sexually assaults clients in an earlier episode. All the male characters behave towards women they are attracted to in incredibly creepy ways at some point during the show. Joey removes the shower curtain when he gets a female roommate.

No, but there is an episode when they show that Rachel has an intense phobia of "things coming close to, or touching eyes", and the others make fun of it. No eye mutilation, but they have to go to the eye doctor in several episodes (problems just mentioned, not explicitely shown).

You never see vomit in any episodes, just the sound and some motions by the actors. I can't remember the episode names but here's what I do know ..

1) it's an episode about stuff that could have been. In one scene, Rachel is drunk and was married to Barry, but went on a date with Joey who is famous. They are about to kiss when she throws up (loud noises, Rachel's head moves forward and Joey makes reference to it)

2) Monica is trying to figure out Phoebe's grandmothers' chocolate chip cookie recipe and Ross is taste testing. One cookie makes him feel sick. They talk about it, Ross makes a gagging motion and at once point makes it known he is about to vomit then runs to the bathroom.

3) Rachel is pregnant and living with Joey. Ross brings Rachel lunch. She begins to eat a sandwich and then asks Ross, "did you put pickles on this?" Ross explains he did, and Rachel runs to the bathroom and then slams the door. You hear and see nothing, but they talk about food aversions from her pregnancy making her sick.

I can't remember any others but I hope this helps!

I don't know if it counts here, as it's more of a disorder, but monica has pretty serious OCD (they call it by name, too, though I don't temember if in a 'jokey' way, though it is actually OCD). It varies if people make fun of it or they are sympathetic and tolerant towatds her.

Not quite an anxiety attack, but there's an episode where Chandler finds out Janice kissed her ex husband twice. He confronts her about it and she begins to talk and keeps making a "haaaah" noise. She says that she can't breathe and begins breathing in and out with a brown paper bag.

There is one episode in the first season when Chandler and a woman gets trapped in an ATM because there is a black-out. There are some other scenes where people or several people are in very small rooms, but they are not really claustrophobic. Also, they sometimes get stuck in things (door, once in a turkey), that can be triggering, but they are always fine after.

No, but Monica struggles with getting pregnant and eventually learns it is impossible. She later adopts but it is an emotional plot line.

Throughout towards Monica. Severe eating disorder content that can be very triggering with its portrayal of obesity and Monica’s new weight being used as a positive and something to aspire to

Echoing another comment, there's very little racial diversity throughout the show. Like almost none.

No but lots of problematic gay jokes and plot lines that portray gay people in a negative light. Chandler is often teased for seeming ‘gay’ (he is not); an episode where upon getting a female roommate Joey ‘acts like a woman.’

Ross becomes concerned at one point that his son is playing with a Barbie & is generally hostile towards his ex-wife (who left him for a woman) and her [female] partner. He occasionally gets paranoid about future girlfriends being gay.

Two of the main characters (Monica and ross) are jewish. Everyone is very accepting and supportive about this and no one really thinks twice about it.

Chandler’s “father” is either a trans woman or a VERY convincing drag queen ,but either way a good chunk of the humor relies on this

No slurs that I can think of but Chandler (and occasionally other characters) is routinely made fun of for acting/seeming ‘gay’ (he is not) and it can be pretty problematic.

No, but there are a lot of homophobic and transphobic jokes—especially in later seasons.

There's an episode in the last season, I think, where ross gets a darker artifical tan than he wanted to, and it could easily be viewed by some as blackface now

There is a lot of kissing and "making out". Sex is not shown explicitly, but sometimes characters are shown afterwards, naked in bed. There is a lot of talk and jokes about sex, and quite a lot of times, when they watch p***o on TV in the background, and the sound effects can be heard.

yes, basically constantly, by many characters who are supposed to be likeable. it’s always for laughs or treated so normal it’s ignored. the main theme of the entire show is pretty much single people seeking sexual partners, which can be done without objectification, but they often sexually objectify the people they’re attracted to.

joey in particular sexually objectifies even his women friends very often. it’s clear he pretty much sees women as porn objects, even his friends who he cares about and probably would like to respect/thinks he respects.

see incest answers for a particularly triggering episode with Ross sexually objectifying his cousin.

characters are naked sometimes but everything important is covered up or the scene is shot waist up. most is a little side boob from a mostly-back angle

Pheobe was previously homeless and talks about her experiences frequently. She also meets people she used to know while living on the streets, including one who still might as he attempts to mug Pheobe and Ross in one episode

There are a few nosebleeds and minor injuries (a cut on Rachel's forehead, for example), but no gore, and not much blood shown.
