There are multiple instances of bugs, snakes and rats, often used in jump scares. Some monsters are bug-like or serpentine (ex, season 1 has a giant preying mantis and season 5 has a giant serpent). Two different characters are turned into rats at different points.

02x19: “I Only Have Eyes For You” - an abusive relationship ends with a murder-suicide. 03x10: “Amends” - A character attempts to kill himself, emotionally intense. 03x18: “Earshot” - A character plans to kill himself, but is talked out of it. (This is the episode where a school shooting is discussed.) 04x11: “Doomed” - A character tries to kill himself. (Note that it's a vampire, and it's played mostly for laughs/not graphic.) 05x22: “The Gift” (major spoilers) - A character kills themself, but it is done as an act of sacrifice, not mental illness. 06x02: “Bargaining Part 2″ - A disoriented, traumatized character attempts to kill herself, but is talked down. 06x07: “Once More With Feeling” - no direct suicide attempt is made, but suicidal thoughts and major depression are major themes throughout the episode (and season 6 in general). 07x04: “Help” - It's speculated that a character is contemplating suicide, although she turns out not to be. 07x06: “Him” - While under the influence of a magic spell, a character tries to kill herself. 07x15: “Get It Done” - A character commits suicide (we also see the body).

Season 6 episode 19 minute 23 Spike forces himself on Buffy in a very graphic scene. Buffy forces him off of her before he can actually force her into having sex. There are flashbacks to this scene later in the episode.
