It's implied that Edmund's mother may have been r*ped by the Monsignor.

In S1E2, about 38 minutes and 50 seconds in, Dr. Hanover mentions in his monologue that Edmund r*ped one priest.

In S1E2 about 43 minutes and 36 seconds in, you see a flash back of Edmund attacking the Monsignor from the point of view of Father Andrews hiding under the bed. You can hear panting, but you can't really see Edmund. It's over in under ten seconds.

SPOILER ⭐️in the very first episode right at the start when edmund is seen murdering the priest it looks like he is doing something with his body. i can’t confirm if it’s actual grape or not but it seems to be implied

The whole series relies on gruesome body horror, especially during the first scene where several characters are brutally murdered and during medical sequences such as detailed performances of lobotomy and other procedures.

In the first episode, there is a scene in a bathroom where the visiting priest's head is repeatedly slammed into the toilet, crushing his skull. It is a quick cut, but is pretty graphic.

At the timestamp 36:30 (Moments after all the nurses are lined up at the nurses station, and Nurse bucket is talking about how the place should be spotless enough for her to eat runny eggs off of any surface) in the 1st episode of the 1st season a patient who is seen screaming and fighting against the nurses trying to hold him down, is forcibly injected with something that appears to knock him out, or at the very least sedate him. It's not a super long scene, but could still be upsetting, nonetheless. The scene only lasts about 30 seconds so it's safe to look at the 37-minuet mark, or when Nurse bucket begins talking about how the nurses need to perform their duties in a very professional manner.

Not quite eye mutilation, but in episode 2 there is an ice pick lobotomy scene, and the ice pick goes under the eyelid to hit the bone there, not damaging the eye itself. The most graphic, close up part of the procedure is shown from about time stamps 19:15 to 19:40. The procedure then picks back up starting at 20:30 from further away with much less detail shown, but you can still hear noises and a description of the procedure, ending at around 21:20.

Vomiting happens about 39 minutes and 27 seconds into episode 1. The actual vomiting is until around 39 minutes and 34 seconds, but you can still see the vomit on the floor until about 39 minutes and 39 seconds. In episode two, the vomiting happens about 19 minutes and 35 seconds in, and ends around 19 minutes and 42 seconds. Both are graphic and up close.

No electro-therapy but other inhumane “treatments” are performed on people in the facility.

*SPOILER* *CONTENT WARNING: TORTURE* Early in S1E3 a lesbian woman is given experimental “treatment” for her homosexuality without her consent or foreknowledge. The character is placed in a warm bath and then trapped via a metal contraption. The water temperature is raised until almost boiling. This goes one for a couple agonizing minutes then she is transferred to an ice bath. She is clearly in pain and begs until she is no longer able to do so. I thought she was going to die.

one of the main characters has DID (which they refer to as multiple personality disorder) and the host (the one they consider the "original") is portrayed as sweet and timid while the alters are portrayed as annoying, rude and in some cases dangerous. the treatment revolves around getting rid of th0e alters rather than managing them and learning to live as a system. i don't speak for everyone with DID but most that i know see each alter as a whole person, and treatment usually revolves around each alter learning to function together

It depends, in S1E2 a child that is presented as being very shy, introverted, nerdy is given a lobotomy for daydreaming and innatentiveness. The idea that he was autistic came to mind (I am also autistic and a psychologist), but it is nothing explicit and it is not shown.

Ratcheted manipulates a patient into ending his life with a letter opener in S1 E1 the maniuplation begins at 44.19, the suggestion of suicide begins at 45.27, it is alluded to that he begins to take his life at 47.05 but this is off screen, his body is found at 48.08.

Also, In episode 4 it is talked about how a young girl jumped from a window to her death.

no, but they do use the "big fat villain, small thin victim" trope heavily in episode 6 which could be triggering. they show many child abusers, but the two fat ones are by far the absolute worst and they are the only ones to end up getting killed by the victims

The first person to die is white, and you see his dead body first. However, after seeing the white man's dead body, the first person you see the murderer actually attack is black.
