The main character goes home with a man while she is drunk. At first they seem to have sex willingly (although consent is dubious because of the alcohol), but then she pulls away and withdraws consent, and he proceeds to assault her.

Starts as consensual, she panics and withdraws consent and he carries on anyway. She doesn’t fight back and the scene is quite short.

[SPOILERS] A character deliberately sets herself on fire in a public place. She does this due to delusions that this is what God wants. We see her douse herself in flammable liquid and strike a flame, then there's an imaginary vision of the scene where she is covered in angelic flames but unharmed, then we see a very brief, but graphic and disturbing shot of her actually burning alive.

Maud severely burns her own hand, and later removes the bandage to pick at the healing wound, in a scene that's pretty graphic and hard to watch. Later, she places tacks in her shoes and forces herself to walk down the street with the tacks piercing her feet. For this part we don't see anything graphic, but our imagination and her reactions are bad enough.

***SPOILERS***
in the opening scene a dead body is shown on a hospital table (not close up).

there is a scene towards the end where Maud hallucinates that Amanda is possessed by a demon, and so she stabs her multiple times with scissors. you see Amanda's dead body on the bed.

at the end of the movie, Maud sets herself on fire (it is presumed she dies) but you dont see the actual moment she dies.

Nobody is actually possessed, but there's a hallucination scene where a character seems possessed by a devil. Also, there are scenes where Maud powerfully experiences the "presence of God" which might remind you of possession, as her eyes roll back and she seems to lose control of her body.

Two scenes: Amanda vomits into a bowl after drinking excessively, and we hear sounds but we don't see much. Later there is a much more graphic scene where Maud vomits on a table in her apartment after a night of drinking. She then falls to the floor and has a seizure, foaming at the mouth (and possibly vomiting more, I'm not sure).

There are brief flashbacks to a previous incident that happened in a hospital; we see a blood-covered patient on a bed and some medical instruments on a table nearby. Much of the movie takes place in the home of a dying woman in palliative care, and we do see a nurse administer medical tests and treatments although it is not a hospital.

STRONG warning for self-harm in this movie. The main character self-harms in various ways [SPOILERS/trigger warning for specific details], including deliberately burning herself, reopening the partially healed burn, putting tacks in her shoes, and ultimately setting herself on fire. Some of these scenes are very graphic. In one shot, we see scars on her stomach that seem to be from previous self-harm incidents.

[SPOILERS] Suicide by self-immolation in a public place. There's a long scene of preparation for the act and the actual burning is shown in one very brief but graphic shot. The character does this enthusiastically; she's experiencing delusions so that she believes this is a holy act desired by God and envisions herself as an angelic figure (I mention the motive in case this is triggering for anyone)

It's used sparingly but effectively. A woman burns her hand and then picks at the scab, which we see in detail. Blood is shown at several points being washed away in a sink or running down a drain. There's blood when a woman is stabbed.

No, but there are a few scenes where one character dunks her head underwater.
