Not onscreen, but there are some moments, particularly with Roland, where his descriptions get quite vivid.

Moira is definitely prone to eccentric behavior, but is not labeled as struggling with a specific mental illness.

Johnny and Moira were, at minimum, emotionally unavailable to the point of abuse/neglect in the past, but within the show itself are not, really.

No children are abused on-screen, but they do describe the ways Moira and Johnny neglected Alexis and David as kids which could be triggering.

Moria is very clearly previously addicted to drugs, or at least reliant on them. It’s not really that upsetting though

Alcohol is frequently consumed throughout the show, and one of the main characters is frequently shown drinking heavily. May be triggering to alcoholics.

In season one-episode 13, Jonny and Moira get an offer to sell the town from a guy named Andy. When Roland has Andy over for dinner he falls into a coma right before signing the paperwork. Just skip the dinner scene, you won’t miss much. :)

S3 E2, Twyla is on a crutch because she broke her foot whitewater rafting. There's no gore or graphic detail. The actual breaking of the bone is not shown or heard, and we only catch a brief glimpse of her foot in a cast.

the wordings of several dialogs are disrespectful. it's implied trans people become their gender instead of being it. one dialog can be understood as saying that trans people are complicated. and there's a storyline about the assumed sex of an unborn baby which I found very annoying.

There are a few episodes where a character drunkenly sleeps in a small closet. In one episode she is trapped in the closet while a smoke alarm goes off. The character is not claustrophobic.

Nothing is shown on screen beyond kissing and laying in bed. There is a lot of innuendo and occasional frank discussons about sex and sexuality. It is never graphic but can be mature.

Multiple incest jokes. Sexual art on the town sign of a man and his sister in a sexual pose. In season 1 episode 4 there is a misunderstanding between a guy and his mother, and she is shown kissing him on the mouth in greeting (which was triggering to me as a survivor)
