I love anime that is a bit more mature, deep, emotional, maybe even tragic.. and with character development because I love anime an that can make me feel something (I'm too empathetic for my own good lol). I also like psychological anime that makes you think, and anime that show mental disorders.

Any recommendations for this type of anime here on CR? Thanks so much!!

^ excellent suggestions by above posters

Parasite-The Maxim: humans versus changeling aliens who are carnivores;

Natsuyuki Rendevous: widow handling decade-old loss encounters much younger lothario (or not) who works for her. Show does a fair depiction of how repressed memories can impede individual recovery when person affected relies solely upon her work for holistic and spiritual comfort;

Aku no Hana aka Flowers of Evil : already suggested above. Author does a decent job depicting bi-polar disorder on affected individual and how certain behaviorisms magnify as well as mortify perceived insecurities of personalities who come in contact with such. Roto-scoped coverage heightens realistic uneasiness of selves and surroundings among the main characters.

School Days: study of seduction / promiscuity run amok coupled with pre-existing male role issues without established boundaries. I still believe last episode saved the show from becoming a total waste of viewer time. Anime adaptation from a game.

Not found on CR but compelling nonetheless:

Kimi ga Nozuma Eien aka Rumbling Hearts: cool series. Three teenagers coping with PTSD after a tragic accident. Series is based on a game but limits paths that can be taken. There are a few leaps of faith in places yet series does a credible job illustrating rites of passage each character endures metamorphosizing from teenager concrete thought to adult conceptual rationalizations. Two OVAs were also produced illustrating outcomes with each female involved different from the original series.

Koi Kaze: family of blend children where 15-year old daughter has a big brother fixation with step-sibling who is 27 and a marriage counselor in private life. Manga goes further than anime suggests yet series treated topic of incest with a high degree of sensitively compared to directions the story could have gone.

Barefoot Gen: polar opposite of Grave of the Fire Flies depicting the insanities war inflicts upon affected populations (Hiroshima A-bomb drop near end of WW2, 1945, by the US). Anime show (2 cours) is not for the faint of heart and should not be shown in front of children. It is as anti-war as a show can get; quite the cautionary tale in its own right. Second half is far more grave than first part. If nothing else the show greatly illustrates the power of animation as a form of expression.

NANA isn't on CR, unfortunately. But it's crazy good. Honestly one of the most mature shows I've seen. It handles it's complex themes through it's incredible character development in very strong ways. One of those shows that you'll get attached to, you'll get emotional but probably not cry over. Regardless, lots of important lessons in it.

These are some good recommendations. Strange how most are nowhere to be seen anywhere near the top of the "popular" listing

OMG I loved Nana. Even though I felt very unsatisfied with the way the anime ended, should I give the manga a chance?

Also thank you everyone for these recommendations omg so excited now!

Yeah. I mean, I thought the ending was passable, it wasn't bad. But it wasn't that perfect ending I so desperately wanted. I haven't read the manga yet! But it's on my list to read!
