A character in season 6/7 thinks she’s seeing ghosts and goes to a mental institution. The main villain makes one of the girls think she’s gone crazy after seeing a dead loved one in the woods during the end of season 3.

Jason, a sibling of two of the main characters, is shown in flashbacks to be high due to his addiction with drugs. He has some relapses through the show but is mostly sober bar the flashbacks. Additionally, further down the line in the show one of the main characters is shown to have a pill addiction.

A cop abuses his power over a woman and enters sexual relations with her in exchange to stopping an investigation against her daughter. A teacher knowingly enters a romantic & sexual relationship with his student when she is underage. This is discussed as generally negative but with no lasting consequences. They are portrayed as a good couple. Attempted rape in season 1, another character intervenes. In Season 7 there are two instances of somebody being tricked into sex by their partner's twin (under the assumption that that person is their partner)

I think there are several instances of this and every one of the girls has been restrained.

Dentist appointments are vaguely mentioned in some episodes, but as far as I remember, no details about tooth damage are discussed in this context. Human teeth are shown (removed post-mortem, no obvious signs of trauma) in 3x02.

Not really, but there’s an explosion that makes a character to go blind in 1x02. Aria is burned for a few seconds in 6x18 but is sent to a hospital and gets better.

This is a theme throughout the show. Characters are seen being buried, one is seen struggling to get out (we can see their hand). Characters describe what they imagine it to feel like.

The theme of being kidnapped plays a role throughout the series when trying to solve a missing person's case of a teenage girl. In season 5 the protagonists are kidnapped and tortured, this plays a role until the end of the series. One child gets kidnapped but not harmed when a character takes it away to a nearby place to scare another character.

- Hanna climbs into the shower with Caleb in Season 2 to keep him living at their house hidden. While there was tension between them, they didn't act on it at the time; - Spencer gets trapped & almost suffocates to death in the shower in Season 3. There's several others.

Although not supernatural in nature several characters have visions of a character believed to be dead; other characters hallucinate deceased characters at one point.

A torture device set up by the villain has characters sit at a device with images of their friends and switches, they get told that they must choose one of the friends to be electrocuted or they all will be. It later emerges that this was about the psychological aspect of the torture and none of them were actually electrocuted. In season 7 upon finding a basement of files; the characters discover that when having her sister institutionalised, one character authorised electro-shock therapy to be used on her. Although it is never explicitly stated or shown it is implied that the character suffered due to this. The main villain of the show spent almost the entirety of her life in a mental institution; it is implied that she was forced to undergo electro-therapy While exploring a sanitarium; the characters find electro-shock therapy devices.

Throughout the show there are several ableist remarks, like referring to a psychiatric clinic as "the looney bin", mentions of "driving the short bus", saneist language like "crazy"/"sick" when meaning "evil"/"harmful"/"bad", etc.

In season 1 a side character Lucas is referred to as “hermie” and “shim” as a way to bully him by implying he’s a hermaphrodite (not quite misgendering but feels close enough to being transphobic)

Nothing sad actually happens at the end, it's a happy ending. However, like all shows, when they come to an end it is naturally sad.

There are two instances of minor car-crashes in which headlights are seen approaching the side-window, both instances involve the driver being taken to hospital however they have no injuries. A mid-season finale ends with the image of a pickup having apparently veered off the road, glass and luggage can be seen lying on the road and the driver and passenger can be seen to be unconscious. The passenger succumbs to her injuries a few episodes later. One episode contains a scene where a car crashes through the front porch and living room of a characters home, no-one is injured or killed and it is implied that the driver bailed out prior to the crash. An intoxicated character crashes his car into the rear of another, no injuries or deaths. A characters mother is involved in a moderate car crash (not seen on screen) the villain sends another character a text message with the image off the totalled car as a threat. The son mentions that his mother felt like she was being ran off the road and it is heavily implied that this was the case. A character disappears from town and subsequently police arrive at his family's home with his wrecked motorcycle.
