Through out the entire show there are several attempts of r*pe that are only stop by interference of either a third person or because the victim 'fights off' their attacker. In light of the time the show was written & aired and the way these cases are shown on screen people might consider them as sexual haressment or sexual assault but they are attempts of r*pe that without interference would have let to r*pe.

before the show begins eric tries to take his life but fails, there are no flashbacks, and it is not discussed in detail (we know how he did it but its not described more than that). SEASON 2 EPISODE 14: a main character is about to take his own life by jumping off of a building but a friend stop him.
