The mutilation itself happens off-screen, but the outcome is visible, and the character later describes the process.

Most of the human race is wiped out in the first episode, so lots of children implied dead. There are a couple memorable/specific offscreen child deaths early in the series. A baby’s neck is snapped in the first episode. In the second episode, the show introduces a little girl who is in a ship that is later destroyed.

Honestly, a lot of the first episode of the miniseries feels reminiscent of the attacks on 9/11. Unsure if that was intentional or not; could possibly be triggering

A character explains a recurring dream they have of committing via a fall from high place. We see a long, slow motion visualization of it all the way up to the fall. No impact.
Much talk of considering suicide follows.

(Major final season spoiler) It is revealed that the final five are the "parents" of the other Cylons, so Saul and Caprica Six's relationship makes another character extremely distraught.
