The protagonist seems to know things about his crush despise never talking to her, but those are harmless things and is mostly just a high school crush.

Character tells another character her brother who was cruel to her really liked her and said tons of nice things about her. It's not intended to be harmful but is not true and makes her question her reality

Towards the beginning, right after connor takes the letter and leaves after shoving Evan down on the ground, there’s a near throw up scene in the school bathroom, then he takes his meds he drops on the floor. It comes out of NOWHERE. Once he gets to his meds the scene is safe to watch.
Second time it’s SUPER fast and out of nowhere. During the first Connor Project meeting after You Will be Found, Alana introduces Jared and he says “well, if you haven’t read the emails between Connor and Evan, you’re gonna wanna grab some tissues”. It’s RIGHT after this line of dialogue. it’s only a 2 second scene but the audio is very graphic. again, it’s in the school bathroom. It’s safe to watch once Evan and Connor’s stepdad are on screen talking about baseball.

SPOILERS- Conner commits suicide early in the show and it is a major plot point. It is implied that when Evan fell out of the tree and broke his arm, he was trying to kill himself. Suicide and suicide awareness is a major plot point.

In the opening song, while Evan talks to his mother, the camera is noticeably shakey. Not sure if it’s intentional.

While there aren't any slurs, Jared makes a lot of jokes on how Evan and Connor are secretly gay for eachother, mostly in "Sincerely Me", but some jokes do come in before the song.
