Jake's father abandoned him as a child, causing severe parental trauma.
Terry briefly mentions that his parents would fight and his dad 'Got Scary'
Rosa talks about how during her time in Juvenile Detention, her family turned their backs on her. Her mother also (briefly) rejected her when she came out as Bisexual.

There is no physical-abuse, and all of it is past-tense.

In the last season (can’t remember the number) Jake stalks a man he believes to be guilty, but isn’t. The episode is meant to illustrate police brutality and cops abusing their powers. Jake gets suspended for this situation.

-There are quite a few episodes wherein drinking alcohol is suggested in response to stress or emotional trauma.
-Binge drinking is depicted in a handful of episodes.
-In S5E19 "Bachelor/ette Party" there is excessive drinking, including drinking games
-In S6E5 "A Tale of Two Bandits," the NYPD engages in an outright drinking contest with the FDNY that involves binge drinking to the point of vomiting.

While undercover in Florida, Jake gets frosted tips in his hair. Upon returning to NYC, the squad tells him his hair looks stupid and that he can cut it or they will do so for him; this is portrayed as an intervention, and Jake is sitting in a chair wearing a barber's cape. At first Jake resists, but when he sees Charles has gotten the same hair style, he comments that he can finally see how bad the look is, and agrees to let them cut his hair.

In episode 11 of season three, Amy breaks Terry’s nose by kneeing him in the face during his self defense seminar. You hear it, see her kneeing him, but you can’t really see the nose. The aftermath can be seen though, and there is blood. Also in another episode, a man breaks his leg (offscreen), (GROSS WARNING) we hear the noise and Jake says, “nothing to see here, just the bone, sticking out of the leg”

Not usually. Except in one episode - kind of out of character for the show. My apologies, I forget what it's called - but it's the one where Jake's parents meet Amy's parents for Thanksgiving. SPOILERS - Jake's dad accidentally cuts off his thumb while drunk and carving a turkey, you can see his severed thumb and tons of blood pouring out of it spraying everywhere. Not gore- but after Gina gets hit by a bus, she has to wear a halo head brace and it has a part that drills into her skull, which she mention, she also does a little dance afterwards to prove she's fine, but while she's dancing, she yells in pain as you can hear the screws squeek on her Halo, it's not Gore, but I found it really gross and similar feeling.

season 3 episode 5 - jake is s*ck twice after climbing the final 15 flights of stairs at the end of the episode. there is nothing on scene however you can hear it. it happens after Jake claims he is “the greatest athlete in the world” so u can skip ahead thirty seconds.
season 4 episode 10 - 6 minuets in - a man in holding is s*ck whilst it’s not shown on screen u can hear him. It is right after he stops sinning so after amy’s line of “it is not” i recommend skipping around thirty seconds.
season 4 episode 17 - 16 minuets in - no one is s*ck but jake is g*gging and it’s insinuated that he is going to be s*ck. it is right after Terry stops spinning Jake around so i recommend skipping about a minute ahead. Later in the same episode 18 minutes in, Holt shows a picture of Amy and she says that is her being s*ck. After Holt shows the image of Boyle i recommend skipping twenty seconds. nothing is shown or heard however s*ck is mentioned.
Season 4 episode 18 - 13 minuets in - v*mit is mentioned by Holt after stating that he is joking.
season 6 episode 5 - 13 minuets in - Boyle is s*ck off screen in the middle of his speech, during him listing the others by name. i would recommend skipping thirty seconds after he says “we’re a family” (it’s not shown however it is audible) later in the same episode - 15 minuets in - Hitchcock says that he has been s*ck. it is right after Jake says “lady’s and gents and perverted Terry” (i would recommend skipping ten seconds.)
and again in the same episode - 16 minuets in - Holt, Amy and Scully have a discussion about how Amy had been s*ck. the conversation lasts around twenty seconds so after Holt asked Amy why she is dancing i would recommend skipping that amount of time. this alongside hitchcocks previous statement is just said there is no visual or audio v*mit scenes.
season 7 episode 7 - 7 minuets in - holt is s*kc / is shown gagging into a bin after talking to amy and rosa about what to say at the memorial. after rosa says “see it’s not that hard to say something nice” he is sick immediately after so i would skip ten seconds from the begging of rosa’s line. there is nothing visual just audio.

In the early seasons there is a lot of copaganda, even if it's not necessarily outright. Notably, in S1Ep19, a cop uses on her cop friend a sound cannon like those used by cops against BLM protestors in the US, and this is treated as a harmless joke that she finds cool and fun. While there are lots of messages increasingly throughout the show on how to improve the police force, such as standing up against racial profiling in S4Ep16, it's still hard to deny that this show favourably depicts cops performing negative actions. It's even a common thing for cops in the 99 (particularly Jake) to break the rules, such as spying on and/or arresting 'suspects' before any proof or evidence is gathered, simply because the cops 'have a hunch,' and they almost always turn out to successfully solve and resolve crimes for having done this. However, it is worth saying that Season 8 has completely turned the show around to take a serious look at issues in the police force, such as addressing in S8Ep1 the now commom idea that there are no actual 'good cops' by nature of them just being in the police force (aka ACAB), and having an ongoing plot about the 99 combating an old white guy who helps cops avoid retribution for literally everything. The release of Season 8 was even delayed because the show scrapped the first few episodes in order to reflect on its messages in wake of the BLM movement that surged in 2020. Ultimately, this show is copaganda for how it routinely plays off amoral and illegal actions of the police force as jokes or being the right thing to have done in the end, but one can't deny that it's further ahead than other cop shows in regards to reflecting on issues in the police force and now actively working to improve it in the show. Still, this show isn't perfect, and it's 100% understandable that someone may wish to avoid any and all instances of copaganda.

In "99", Charles is trying persistently to learn about Rosa's new "boyfriend". After he accidentally overhears a phone call that reveals her partner is a woman, Rosa admits that she is bisexual.

Not specifically "outing", but Rosa is uncomfortable with Charles finding out by accident.

Charles is supportive, and though he struggles with keeping her secret, he manages to do so until she is ready to tell the rest of the squad (and later her parents) in the next episode, S5 E10 "Game Night".

There are several hospital scenes, and an entire episode takes place solely in a hospital where they are guarding an unconscious witness who is in danger.

Yes, clearly Pimento. Who was undercover for many years with a horrible crime boss. He mentions sometimes graphic instances of torture, violence, and murder. He also mention says by how he got kicked out of the apartment because of him screaming so loud at night from night terrors. It's clear he's traumatized, but it's played off for laughs. There's one instance where Charles son nikolaj has symptom of PTSD as well, when Charles tells Jake to quiet down because "If Nikolaj here's two men arguing in another room. He might think he's getting sold again". Other than that, no, it's not a prevalent part of the show.

Some criminals could be mentally ill but the show doesn’t introduce a character as mentally ill and then show them performing violence

Yes!!! Well. Kind of. A character without DID gets into a situation where he has to keep his cover by pretending to have DID. It was a completely unnecessary scene and just used as a joke (all the alters have different accents). Whilst it’s not showing people with DID as violent, it’s pretty disgusting and unnecessary. Also, in the show it’s referred to by the outdated term “multiple personality disorder”

Yes Terry has a lot of body dysmorphia due to being fat before the show took place. He is obsessed with maintaining his perfect body and reacts very strongly to any sort of fat joke.

At one point his wife is concerned with losing baby weight causing Terry, Amy and Gina to go on a comically restrictive diet in solidarity.

The only panic attacks I can think of are Amy’s claustrophobia, Rosa’s fear of giving blood and Holt’s elevator phobia. All are mild but do feature heavy breathing etc. I can’t think of any others off the top of my head but I think there are a couple others (involving Jake and Charles?).

Amy, the claustrophobic character, is occasionally locked in small spaces and experiences anxiety. The cast as a whole is occasionally trapped in a specific room for humor or plot points, but they are not generally tense.

Very brief. In S2 E8 "USPIS" Amy is trying to quit smoking. As a technique for resisting cravings, Terry encourages her to dunk her head in cold water. Both characters do this several times, and the camera POV is from under the water watching them as their faces come under and flail due to the cold icy water. No threat of drowning or implication that they cannot surface if they wish.

There is verbal homophobia and biphobia throughout the show but it's ALWAYS portrayed as a bad thing, and the people making the comments either face reprecussions or change for the better. The main cast are all supportive of one another.

While the answer is yes, the hate speech portrayed is done so by the antagonist of the episode and he is promptly punched in the face into a hot tub. Likewise, the main characters share their disgust toward that kind of speech. It is there, but it is swiftly punished and denounced.

Minorities aren’t really represented as “more violent” but there’s a lot of mental I’ll perps. Tbh a lot of mentally ill cops too.

There’s onscreen verbal discrimination against minorities, including racism, sexism, ableism, and homophobia.
Most of the time the main characters are okay but they do make a few jokes that go too far.

Season 2 Episode 18: Gina says to Terry and Amy “I'm sorry if we implied you're both asexual nerds who can only be friends with service animals.” Asexual is used as a derogatory term in this context.

hitchcock frequently makes creepy statements subtly objectifying women, often a lot younger than him (but adults) or other pervy/fetishy objectifications like nursing mothers. Gina sexually objectifies Terry a lot.

In fact, emotional openness in male characters is portrayed as welcome and positive; they are encouraged to show feelings, cry, and seek therapy as healthy expressions of emotion.

It’s New York. There are often homeless characters in the background, in one scene Amy very violently pushes a homeless man to the side while following a criminal.
The characters also often refer to homeless people as “hobos”.

it is spoken about multiple times. in the episode of Adrien and Rosa's wedding, Adrien pilots a plane (with Gina and Jake as passengers) and it is clear he doesnt know how to fly; it is implied they may crash and the characters look scared but their landing is not shown and they are all seen to be completely okay later in the same episode. this is a short, non-intense scene and meant to be humerous but may be upsetting if viewers are sensitive to this topic

This is a cop show; guns are shown, pointed, and fired. At the end of S1 E11, a main character is shown being shot in the b**t (he survives and this is mainly played for comedic effect).
