Child abuse is a main theme in the show. There are many flashbacks of Anne’s abuse, there is emotional and physical abuse by teachers, and a character is emotionally abused by his mother.

In one episode Anne speaks of one of her old homes in which the father was a drunk and another time when Anne and Diana go to a bar to meet a man that seems to be a drunk

But there is drinking at points and times throughout this whole show and small appearances of drunk people (non scary or violent appearances) so if you aren’t comfortable with drinking at all might not watch this

Not that I've seen so far, but early in season two episode 5 boys lift Anne's skirts to show off her bloomers. It causes a flashback to similar bullying from the girls in the orphanage and it may be triggering for some. During the game of spin the bottle Anne has a flashback of being kissed and kicked by a girl in the orphanage.

There is groping and kissing in the third season while the girl is saying no. In the first season Anne talks about overheating a woman being sexually assaulted, and it is implied that she was kissed against her will in the orphanage.

Season 1, episode 6. Minnie May has croup. They give her Ipecac (it's mentioned but not seen). She doesn't v*, but is coughing badly and brings up phlegm which you don't see as she has a cloth on her mouth. The noises could be triggering.

Season 2, episode 4. Gilbert is drinking at a bar with Bash and downs his drink, then v*s on the floor.

Season 3, episode 8. When the class are outside nervous about taking their exam, one of the boys is breathing into a paper bag. He passes the bag to another boy who v*s in it. Audio only. Another boy walks away towards a cart and looks like he's r*ing in the distance.
The boy with the bag v*s again after the teacher walks in.
