two birds die during the film and their bodies are shown. the first is seen at 1:06:30. the bird's body is shown clearly in its cage and there are feathers and blood around it. at 1:09:10 the second dead bird is shown in someone's bed. it is also shown clearly, and can be seen briefly in the background after the reveal. finally, the first bird is shown again at 1:14:45, beind buried. none of the shots are very long but they are graphic and uncomfortable.

medication is given to treat mental illness throughout the film. it can be assumed that the effects of the medication are strong and that the person taking it doesn't have a choice not to take it.

no, but a hand is stabbed with a pair of scissors at 1:27:09, and there are close ups of bloody fingers scratching at things as someone attempts to get free towards the end of the film.

the reason why the answers on this are split is due to it being hard to distinguish between 'abuse' and 'torture'. the film features prolonged torment at the hands of a parental figure, including accusations of being crazy, mocking, confinement and physical abuse. there is also a scene where someone dies slowly and torturously after someone chooses not to help them. these scenes may or may not read as 'torture', per se.
