Heroes can become afflicted by Alcoholism (herein called the 'Tippler' quirk, and the mental illness Dipsomania, which, respectively mean they can only visit the Tavern, or are obsessed with alcohol and will go to great lengths to get drunk.)

As a precaution; the Flagellant hero class has a Crimson Court DLC trinket depicting a chipped tooth, but no action of physically damaging any teeth is shown. Implied in his comic, however.

No seizures actually happen onscreen. Though yes, if someone does get pushed to their breaking point, there is a chance that they'll get an affliction that makes them go mad.

Several Bandit enemies use whips.
Flagellation (either whipping yourself or having a confessor do so) is a stress-releif ability at the Cathedral.
The Flagellant Monk hero wields a scourge whip.
Swine Slasher enemies target sensitive areas in combat, and they themselves have crude cybernetics replacing their hands and feet.

There are traps that play a loud noise and quickly pan to a visual of your character dodging/taking damage, but they at most a little surprising and shouldn't worry anyone concerned about horror-game style jumpscares.

The Abomination hero lives in symbiosis with a demon. He can let it out to play nearly at-will.
The Occultist channels dark forces for his abilities, and is occasionally possessed by them when Stressed Out.
Swine enemies are the result of the Ancestor's demonology experiments.
The Cultist and Madman enemies in the Darkest Dungeon area are at least indwelled and deformed by their uh, passengers.
The mental sickness 'Demonomania,' wherein the afflicted beleives themselves to be possessed but really is not, can be develloped.

Skeleton enemies, and a boss who summons floating ghost heads.
The Drowned Crew boss is a group of ghostly pirates and their cursed anchor.
The Squiffy Ghast enemy is a ghost pirate who plays the fiddle and drinks hilarious ammounts of rum.
The Narrator is the ghost of the player's uncle.
A ghost not seen anywhere else in the game cameos in the intro cutscene.

You can send your heroes to hospitals, but there's no scene that plays when you do it. Only flavor text on what's probably happening while they get treated.

Masochistic characters sometimes deliberately hurt themselves.
Flagellation (beating yourself with a whip) is a stress-releif activity at the Cathedral.
The Flagellant Monk Hero can do this at Camp.

There are however several lines of dialogue that afflicted heroes can say during combat about wanting to commit suicide, or otherwise begging for death.

It's a major part of the game. Characters gain Stress until they have a panic attack at 100/200, then have a full-blown heart attack at 200 Stress.

None of the characters are explicitly stated to be LGBT+ since the story takes place in the middle ages, though no character is openly homophobic as well.

Aligning with the vague, victorian area that the game takes place in, "madmen" and those undergoing mental struggles are disparaged by the characters.

Implied, but not on-screen. The heroes can see prostitutes to relieve stress.
Some mild flirting on some of the Grave Robber's lines.
