In the Hatter level, the background has lots of dead dodo birds. In London there's a butcher with dead pigs. In the Ocean level, there's dead fish.

The two boss characters, Dormouse (Mouse) and March Hare (Hare), are both killed during the finale of "Hatter's Domain" first by blunt force and subsequently they are also drowned in tea.

All throughout the game you come across several interpretations of bugs ranging from Maggots to Leeches. Many serve an aesthetic purpose; however two instances stand out. Bolterflies (Mechanic interpretation of Dragonflies), Oriental Themed Wasps, and a Caterpillar in Chrysalis stage.

The Jabberwocky, who resembles a dragon, was slain in the previous game. His skeleton can be found in a sea of blood.

In the Hatter's Domain, there is an enemy called an Eyepot, a teapot with a giant eyeball and three spindly legs. It can climb and crawl around with its legs, in a manner similar to a spider.

The character Pris Witless is an alcoholic and uses Alice to get more. She or Alice herself mention it a few times.

The primary combat mechanic involves Alice using a Vorpal Blade (Kitchen Knife) to cut apart her enemies. The responding damage wails of said enemies may be triggering to specific audiences.

Forms of torture are heavily referenced in the Asylum level, but are cut away from before beginning.

The entirety of the Liddell family has been burned alive prior to the events of the game with the exception of Alice. This fact plays a key role in the events of the game and is referenced and visualized multiple times throughout.

Broken Teeth (Regular and Gold) are used as the primary currency of the in-game upgrade system. Alice herself also loses teeth instead of the regular health-roses while wearing the "Hattress" dress.

One of the recurring enemies, The Eyepot, has to be shot and stabbed into their eye several times in order to be defeated. Throughout the game some characters are also portrayed eyeless with occasional black goo flowing out of their eye sockets.

Alice's Mother, Father, and older Sister have died in a house fire which left Alice orphaned. The events are frequently touched upon during the main plot of the game and at times used to taunt and gaslight Alice herself.

An unnamed girl (Referred to as one of the Insane Children) approaches Alice in Hyde Park shortly prior to the chapter "Dollhouse". She is mortally wounded, bisected, and dies shortly after imploring Alice to help the other children.

Not any toy in particular, but the Dollhouse level is filled with broken children's toys.

During the chapter "Deluded Depths" Alice has to face off against the "Lost Souls" which are a series of ghosts in the form of drowned sailors.

A small section of Chapter 5 shows Alice in a straitjacket wandering around Rutledge Asylum, where she used to stay in the previous game.

References to Electro-Therapy are being made as having been performed on Alice during her stay at the "Rutledge Asylum". A scene involving said therapy has been planned to make an appearance however the segment was ultimately cut from the game and only remains in concept art.

Needles and Syringes have a minor appearance as indicators for collectible "Memories". However later in the game during the "Rutledge Asylum" segment they become featured more promptly; having been used on patients. Alice herself also undergoes a very similar albeit different treatment called the Trepanning Therapy on-screen.

Alice is repeatedly belittled for her past and low social status by a series of actor characters throughout the story. Her recurring fear of the past events is commonly downplayed as "Pointless Insanity" and she is advised several times to simply "Forget About It".

i don't think it says so in game but in a menu you can find a recap of what happened before this, and it mentions that Alice used to self harm when she was younger

The entire story is about how mentally ill people are abused and mistreated. Many characters make derogatory remarks about Alice's mental health, but the story never demonizes her or the mentally ill. Alice and the other Insane Children are always depicted as sympathetic.

Someone IS hit by a train though, which might be similar enough if you have triggers.

A main character is revealed to be secretly facilitating the abuse and objectification of children, or possibly taking part in it themself. The game heavily references the abuses these children have suffered.

Alice is retrieved from the water and can be heard gasping and coughing for breath, but she's fine.

During the finale of "Hatter's Domain" both the March Hare, Dormouse, and the Mad Hatter drown in a rising ocean of tea as the factory crumbles around them. Alice is only shortly after pulled out of the River Thames.

Yes. Attacking most enemies causes them to splatter realistic blood. Same goes for Alice getting hit.
