Depends if it's considered technically "stalking in these scenarios, but a crooked FBI agent is on the hunt for some of the main characters, as well as a crooked prison guard, other villains stalk and follow others. The promise on the show involves almost all the characters on run all the time, so they are constantly being searched for by both regular law enforcement, but as well as many villains.

We see that Michael was abused by his foster family as a child. There is mention that one of the main antagonists is a pedophile and convicted rapist. There is a young prisoner in the jail who is being sexually abused by another inmate. It is shown in flashbacks that a main character was sexually abused by his father.

It is a somewhat frequent theme, one of the main characters (TBag) is a convicted serial rapist. He is a main character and antagonist throughout all the seasons, although there are no graphic sexual violence scenes, the theme is present very often.

I would strongly suggest that you don't watch this show if that's your trigger <3

SPOILERS
In the first season TBag is seen to be sexually abusing a fellow inmate, who asks Micheal to help him, and later kills himself. Later a new inamte comes in and TBag attempts to Coerce him into sex.This same character survives an attempted rape by another inmate using a knife. Later through flashbacks we see that TBag was sexually abused by his father as a child. In the finale TBag had captured and is seen to attempt to rape a main female character. Another female antagonist shows a character her scars on her thigh, from surviving rape.

Hand mutilation yes, pretty bad. Someone get his hand cut off, carries it along in ice for a while, attempts to sew it back on, doesn't work very well and it gets necrotic. Eventually he's cuffed to a radiator and to break free he pulls until the hand fells off again.

One of the (antagonistic) main characters is a sex offender who (also) pursues predatory relationships with minors. His gaze is represented in the narrative, although the framing is always clear on that it is wrong.

Season 1 episode 4, around 5mins in an inmate sticks his hand down his throat to force himself to v*, nothing is shown but there is clear audio. In season 1 episode 11, inmate is covered in sick around 23mins or 24 and was very visual. In 1×21 sucre runs to toilet Don't think anything is shown but clear audio. It happens after Michael comes in to check he has done his job. Idk what times but any scene with Haywire in season 1 he may be sick especially when Michael is in the pyscho ward with him (they are forced to take pills and at multiple points Haywire is sick.)

In season 1 main character cuts open the skin on his arm to retrieve something he has hidden there. Not sure if this would be considered self harm, but was extremely triggering and upsetting.

Yes, one of the main characters in season one is an inmate from the psych ward in the prison. He's been diagnosed with " schizoaffective disorder with bipolar tendencies" He's obviously in prison in the first place - because he killed his parents. Later in the series he shows aggression.

at the start of season 1, one of the main plots is a building race war within the prison, there is a lot of racist/homophobic hate speech during this time, it lessens towards the end of season 1 and isn't as prevalent through out the rest of the show.

examples of this are t-bag (one of the main characters) being in a white supremacist gang, he often refers to black characters as "rugheads", goes on more than one rant about latin people being lazy and refers to another character as "tweener" since he is white but "wants to be black"

there are more examples but if you are sensitive to language like this, i would suggest skipping this show

Unsure if this is counted, but people in the prison psych ward are often made fun of and called things like "nutjob" and the psych ward itself is referred to as the "whack shack".
