Jeff's father ran away from him and his mother when he was 8, it is mentioned, but at the time of the show it has been ~25 years, however, he is still dealing with trauma

it is heavily alluded to that Britta was molested. Never explictly stated in the show. Dan Harmon confirms she was molested and her father did not believe her. Her relationship with her parents is very strained.

In season 3 Chang has a bunch of preteen boys under his control as police officers in order to take over Greendale

Jeff is choked in anthropology class by the teacher who is then suspended, and later in season six Jeff chokes Abed during ‘Intro to Recycled Filmmaking’ after cutting his role in his crappy movie. In the finale of season six, he also imagines choking many clones of Abed. It’s a bad out of character season for Jeff

In S3e5, two characters are sewn together by their arms. The process of the stitching is not shown, but the end result is. It is played as a parody of horror movies and played for laughs (for instance, it gives them mind powers). In the same episode, a different character's hands and feet are swapped (by being cut off and sewn) and his butt is attached to his chest. Again, it is played as a joke.

No, however there is a hangman drawing (the game) in the intro/ opening of every episode. The opening song also says 'we could be roped up, tied up, dead in a year'. This may sound ridiculous but it can be jarring and triggering for someone affected by hanging, specifically.

Not really, as it is only mentioned once in one episode where Troy mistakenly says he ‘hopes he gets multiple personality disorder, because he gets lonely in the shower’ and mpd is a term that used to be used for did but is largely inaccurate and many people dislike

Though he denies that it was a suicide attempt, Jeff drinks a lot of scotch and overdoses on pills in this episode and hallucinates being in G.I. Joe, then wakes up in the hospital, having lived from his overdose. He claims it was an accident and he just didn’t want to be older. This has concerning implications however, because Jeff as a character makes a lot of jokes about suicide notes and killing himself and it can easily be seen as an actual suicide attempt, even though he says it isn’t. Jeff Winger is also not known for telling the truth, so idk. just be careful with this episode if this is something that bothers you.

Jeff has an unhealthy relationship with his body and it is mentioned in multiple occasions throughout the series. They never seriously adress it though (in some episodes things relating to that problem are minor plot points and while the episode itself "resolves" it in a way but problem never goes away or is implied to be getting better and actually gets worse) and the character is reluctant to admit it most of the time

In “introduction to statistics” (S1E7) Pierce is high on drugs and says “I’m going to crush myself to death with these tables and chairs.”

No, but in "Advanced dungeons and dragons" Neil is harassed over his weight and it could be triggering for some. Jeff winger is shown to have an unhealthy relationship with food and his weight. Annie and britta are referred to as "skinny bitches" and "anorexic jezebels", which could possibly be triggering. Shirely is told that she needs to "check the door before she goes through it", reffering to her weight.

Several times throughout the show.
In season 1, episode 1 ~1:14-1:45 minutes in Jeff is watching Britta from afar while trying to get information about her to pursue her romantically/ sexually.

There’s a joke about a man who wears dresses actually being a transgender woman (not true, played for laughs). Also a character claims his mother would berate him for not being a girl, and make him wear a princess tiara.

The dean often wears feminine clothes and is made fun of for it. There are also a few other comments by characters that imply they only see supporting trans people as a way to earn brownie points rather than a legitimate issue. Troy and Pierce are manipulated into wearing “lady’s pantsuits” for laughs as well.

~1:00 - Abed describes his dad as Palestinian and promptly clarifies that he is not a threat to National Security, which people want to know as he has 'angry energy'.
~9:20 - Pierce calls Abed 'Abed the Arab' pronounced 'Ay-bed' the 'Ay-rab', possibly in reference to the 1962 racially stereotyping song, 'Ahab, The Arab'.
'I was raised on TV, and I was conditioned to believe that every black woman over 50 is a cosmic mentor.' - Jeff to the study group (including Shirley, a middle aged black woman).
~10:18 Shirley becomes angry and describes an act of violence (grabbing the back of someone's head and pushing it through a jukebox). It is later confirmed in the same episode that this almost certainly occured, and later in the show is definitively confirmed. This is the first instance of violence described/ referenced in the show and plays into the 'angry black woman' stereotype/ trope.
~10:18 - Shirley references grabbing the back of someone's head and pushing it through a jukebox. This particular act is referenced throughout the show, as Shirley did this to a sex worker ('stripper').

There is a lot of discrimination against the autistic character by other characters, as well as references to him being severely bullied in the past. Most of the jokes about autism are written by an autistic writer, however may be mistakenly interpreted as ableist if the viewer is not aware of this. Some of the ableism is the show is addressed, some is not.

there's the dnd episode with dark-elf-face, but there's also what I believe is brownface in the fist chang dynasty. Pierce dresses up in a swami outfit and I'm pretty sure his skin is darkened. It's not too noticable tho.

romantic tension is shown between jeff and annie, annie is 18 when the series starts and jeff is presumably in his late twenties or early thirties. troy and britta also date for a while with troy being 19 at the beginning of the show and britta being around jeffs age

No bestiality, the dean does have a fetish of dalmatian patterns. In the episode, he hires a dalmatian mascot and is implied to have a romantic connection by calling the mascot his soulmate.

S6E12 a M/F couple learn that they are cousins and decide to stay together anyway. It's played up as humorous and the term incest is used. At the end of the episode there's a sort of PSA from that episode's writer about misconceptions re: offspring of incest between cousins.

One of the characters is very religious and occasionally makes off-handed comments about abortion in a negative tone (though it’s treated humorously by the show)

The show has a bittersweet ending. While it’s a happy ending for Annie and Abed as they leave hopeful about their characters, it’s a pretty sad ending for Jeff. He’s left behind by his friends, still struggling with alcoholism, and in a job he hates.

Mostly from Epidemiology when students in the school are biting each other after a zombie outbreak. A couple wounds are shown and star burns bites someone graphically as well as the whole cast being taken out one by one.
Chang at some point gets bitten by a cat and it swells disturbingly.
Pierce gets shot in the leg in Remedial Chaos Theory and blood comically shoots out of it.
In the episode where they tell scary stories a couple of the scenes have gore or body horror.
In the first paintball episode Jeff gets a splatter of blood on his shirt but it just looks like paint. That’s all I could think of

Mainly paintball fighting, but it is shown in an authentic gun-fight way, so if someone is bothered by that it could be triggering.
