Rebecca was emotionally abused by her mother, and her father abandoned her. They're both terrible, but she does the work to make her mental health better throughout the show.

The main storyline initially focuses on Rebecca running into a man she briefly dated in high school, dropping everything, and moving across the country to pursue him. As she attends therapy, she realizes she needs to own up to this and offers a sincere apology. There is also a subplot where Rebecca is stalked by a former college classmate.

"In one episode, a character discusses how she had a sexual relationship with her teacher when she was in high school. It was apparently consensual and the character claims it was no big deal, but another character is highly disturbed by this, pointing out that it was statutory rape and asking if the teacher was ever fired." from Unconsenting Media

"Crazy" and similar words are used of some neurodivergent people, including the main character who has BPD. But "retard" is never used.

In the beginning of season 2, though her boyfriend falls of the face of the earth. Also near the end of season 3. It is stated as wrong, though, and these things don't last.

[MAJOR SPOILER] It is revealed in a flashback that a character who committed a serious crime was ordered to receive treatment at a psychiatric institution in lieu of a prison sentence (S2E13). Another scene involves an individual's hospitalization (presumably in a psychiatric ward) after a suicide attempt (S3E6). This individual later begins outpatient treatment with a staff psychiatrist.

Verbally violent— it’s called splitting and the main character attacks her friends verbally in a rage/response to emotional distress. She also threatens her boss with a pen, chases and tackles him (but it’s not violent-violent).

There are two suicide attempts referenced, one of which is onscreen where the character overdoses but asks for help last minute. However, nobody dies.

The protagonist Rebecca makes a suicide attempt onscreen. Nathan’s mother made a suicide attempt before the events of the show. Before Rebecca’s suicide attempt, her mother catches her researching suicide methods on the Internet

Rebecca's trapped in an elevator with her boss during a power outage. This scene could be triggering to someone who truly suffers from claustrophobia.

The season three song "The Miracle of Birth" is humorous but focuses a lot on the grosser/less pleasant aspects of giving birth.

A lot of "I'm so stupid" and S1E3: "I have friends song" there are people with burns, scars, etc in the group of ppl with no friends- but could also be seen as empowering & a call out to abled people (not sure) ?

Someone in the pilot tells Rebecca she doesn't look Jewish. As noted above there's a lot of jokes about being Jewish but it's mostly tongue in cheek since Rachel Bloom is Jewish and often incorporates it into her comedy.

Note that many of the comments about fatness come from characters who are self-deprecating or from characters known to be emotionally abusive, rarely is fatphobia shown in a positive light.

(Plot heavy spoilers) Season 2 episode 13 (season finale) It is revealed that Rebecca previously had a relationship with her married law professor. We don't know exactly how old each character was but at the start of the series Rebecca is 26 and we can assume the age gap between her and her professor was significant. Season 3 episode 4 Rebecca and Marco (Greg's dad) sleep together.

There is sexual content that isn't too graphic. Some I remember: S1, E17: During the song "oh my god, I think I like you" there are sex scenes. S2, E1: mentioned but not graphic S3, E2: the song "strip away my conscious" shows a character undressing themselves to trade sex for getting revenge (doesn't happen)

No and the show makes a point of not sexualising characters. One example of the show making this point is in the song "fit hot guys have problems too"

Nathan cries a few times throughout the series. He tries to cover it up each time because he has internalized from his father that basic human activities like crying and napping are weak and unmanly

Greg's dad has emphysema Spoilers for season 3 Like BIG spoilers Rebecca gets diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) Note: Not technically an illness but has definitely had a chronic impact on her life. With the right treatment BPD can improve to the point that some patients almost completely eliminated however it is not considered to be "curable". Treatment for BPD can be extremely successful and have a massive positive impact on peoples lives however it takes a lot of hard work and effort.
