Splinter occasionally smacks the turtles over the head as discipline and "nerve pinches" Raph once to stop him from yelling. The turtles occasionally hurt each other for comedic purposes

In season 4, Shredder is mutated, and keeps wanting more mutagen to sustain himself. This can be seen as addiction and substance abuse, especially when the other villains keep trying to intervene and tell him no. (This is copy pasted from another answer I made)

At least one animal is shown to be mutated. In some instances, mutation is shown to be very painful, but in other instances it's not.

A cat is accidentally mutated but survives and is turned into a live cat-shaped pile of ice-cream. She is loved and treated well by the main characters, and so are other cats in the show

I’d like to say technically? In season 5, a creature called the demodragon is summoned by cultists and a few episodes later he falls into a portal where he presumably would die.

There is a villain who is mutated into a fly-human hybrid. And in season one, episode eighteen, Raph is forced to face his fear when a cockroach is mutated. In season one, episode twenty-three, a parasitic wasp is the main enemy, and it brainwashes three of the turtles into taking care of its young and then allowing themselves to be eaten by the babies [they survive]. And in season four, episode twelve, the turtles end up on an alien planet with bug-like creatures. And in season four, episode seventeen, Raph again has to face his fear of bugs as they face a bunch of mutated bug enemies.

In season four, episode twenty-four, a villain is fighting against his childhood friend. The friend cuts off his arm. It's not bloody, but you see his severed arm, see the turtle's shocked reactions, and hear his screams as he clutches where his arm used to be.

A head gets PULLED as though there was a "mask" on it while a guy yells in pain. They stop doing that before there's any permanent damage.

Casey is missing several teeth, implied to be lost during hockey games. In an episode Casey falls from a height and sits up, checking his mouth and saying ‘I think I lost another tooth’. In an episode, Mikey’s teeth fall out in a comedic light after they arrive home to the lair, this isn’t permanent and was only done for the joke of it.

Multiple scenes. In one of them, April is kidnapped and strapped to a table by the Kraang, who drive a needle-tipped device close to her face to "extract a DNA sample". When she suggest a less painful alternative, they reply that the painful way is more entertaining. She is rescued before anything happens

It's mentioned later on that April's mom died. And in the end of season three [SPOILER ALERT] Splinter is killed by Shredder, but the turtles manage to change the timeline and save him. Near the end of [SPOILER ALERT] season four, Splinter actually dies this time, killed by Shredder.

Several times. In season two, episode two, there's a mutant squirrel that goes into the stomach of people through their mouth so they can multiply, and exit the stomach through the mouth again, kind of as if they're being vomited out. And in the early bits of season three, Leo vomits out something Donnie made for him to drink so he can recover. His vomit is shown and, since it the drink contained mutagen, mutated a plant.

A lot of screaming from injuries, occasional bone cracking/crushing sounds.
Example, in season 4 when Splinter is in a chasm, he breaks his leg and not only has to reset it himself which you fully hear the aftermath of that, but it also ends up being stomped later which you also fully hear, bone crunching and screams of pain.

The police just show up sometimes, usually as a plot device to make the turtles have to leave an area. They never really do anything in the show.

There's one episode in season two where Mikey needs to make an antidote for his brothers, who are brainwashed by a parasitic wasp. He used a needle to inject the antidote into himself and his brothers.

Implied for Leo following the death of Master Splinter, often hallucinating that he is there with them and talking to him for advice. The first time this happens, he is in the woods surrounded by falling petals which I personally think solidifies it as a hallucination rather than spiritual, as we were never shown any pink flowers in those woods before that point.
Also implied for Donnie, after he is kidnapped by Don Vizioso in season 4, then tries to get revenge on him in season 5 before stopping himself from murdering him out of fear of his own anger.
Possibly implied for Raphael, he has a huge phobia of bugs but in an episode where he has to fight bugs, he starts hallucinating horrifying scenes and this could possibly be trauma related rather than just a simple phobia given how severe the visions were and how they left him afterwards.

Mikey once makes a joke about Raph being "the r-word". After a second of his brothers' shocked reactions, he clarifies, "wrong", as they facepalm and shake their heads. It's played as a joke about Mikey being bad at spelling

Leonardo has romantic feelings for Karai, who is the biological daughter of his adoptive father. There are hints they may be romantically involved, even after she has been referred to- and accepted as their sister.

The Mutant Apocalypse arc ends on a pretty bittersweet note. Although the Turtles have finally reunited and can spend the rest of their days in peace, that still doesn't distract from the fact that the storyline takes place in a post-apocalyptic world where everyone they know is dead.

Whilst blood and gore is never shown, some mutations on the show are quite grotesque and fall under the body horror category, which can be disturbing for some viewers.

Albeit there are no deaths (as far as I'm concerned) from drowning, characters are showed in non-fatal drowning situations in some episodes.
