It's not shown, but there's one scene where it's very strongly implied that one of the characters was sexually abused as a child.

You see the cuts from self-harm, but not the cutting itself.

You don't see the self-harm itself, just the cuts afterwards as the person seeks treatment.

Someone kills themselves as well as another person. The suicide itself is not seen, just mentioned afterwards.
