The Catholic Church teaches that a man's life does not belong to him but to God. As such, suicide is a grave or mortal sin, condemning the perpetrator to Hell.
In 1997, the Church acknowledged that a person who attempts or commits suicide may not be in full possession of their sensibilities, and if this were the case they may be forgiven.
