It’s discussed as a “porn” website. Not because of sexual material, but as a tool for cutters to, allegedly, “scratch the itch” or interest in cutting themselves or others without the actual act.
(Also, the victim’s mother is seen cutting her hand on glass which clear clearly triggers her (and the defendant’s mother secretly peering through the window )

—————-
MULTIPLE triggering suicide allegations with simulations. One by strangulation in episode 8 (I think) everyone believes that a character wrote a suicide note and hung himself. The character is seen writing that note. It is later discovered (believed to be) a murder, not a suicide.

a character doesn’t self harm, but there is a website called the cut up room which is discussed quite a bit in the show. there are images of self harm shown on the website, but it’s easy to skip.

MULTIPLE triggering suicide allegations with simulations. One by strangulation in episode 8 (I think) and another arguable attempt in the last episode.
:::Ending Spoiler:::
Just because it could be particularly triggering for someone, the mother allegedly runs her car in to a concrete wall attempting to kill them both. She is not indicted for the allegation and it assumed, by the grand jury, to be an accident. Both mother and son are seriously injured.

ep 1-3: there are flashbacks to a knife constantly, but nothing happens with it. ep 1-8?: a boy is shown with blood covering his chest and up to his neck, but we can’t see the stab wounds graphically. ep 5: there is also a brief glimpse of a website with s*lf harm wounds but it’s on a phone and hard to see clearly. ep 8: someone cuts their hand on a piece of glass and another person watches them through the window. ep 4: bloody pictures of a dead squirrel.
