Not exactly, but there are some addiction-like responses in book 1 that could be triggering for people. (Book 1 spoilers ahead.) The kids using the Whisperer talk about it almost like it’s some kind of high - including missing it afterwards, almost to the point of craving. It reads a LOT like a process/behavioral addiction.

There is an attempt, but it is not pre-planned or due to depression, and it is stopped (spoilers for book 3 ahead!)

A character decides very suddenly that they don’t want to get captured, and puts themselves in harm’s way. They get saved right away.
