Few medical scenes where a doctor preforms a Lobotomy but no other tools or procedures are really completed. The second movie has a electo therapy that does go wrong and light a man on fire.

I would say no with a strong caveat, the movie takes place in an abandoned asylum and several of the ghosts are of past patients, but the emphasis generally seems to be that they're violent because they're ghosts not because they may have been mentally ill in life, I would still proceed with caution if this is something you're sensitive to though

Reality is extremely messed up and confusing. Things happen that make the characters doubt reality. For example, they go through a door expecting it to lead outside, only for it to be just another hallway, and it freaks them out. They also freak out over the sun not having risen an hour after it was meant to. This type of thing happens frequently and it makes the characters question their sanity.

Definitely nothing explicit but some of the ghosts are likely to have been abused autistic people.

One of the ghosts/patients commits in a bathtub, there's discussion and visuals of it. A person also falls to their death, but it doesn't seem like they were lucid enough to understand what they were doing.

In the sense that characters talk directly to the camera/audience, as though this is real found footage. They don't break the fourth wall in acknowledging that this is a movie.

Homophobic insults are used towards a character who dies but it seems more to be meant as an insult to the theater industry than implying the character is actually LGBT

Along with using the r-word as a slur, they are also filming in a mental institution and refer to stories heard in the set up and events throughout as being insane, crazy, etc., not in particularly offensive ways but not really tactful either.
