From my POV - to be a mortal (very serious sin) there are three conditions:

You need to know it is serious and wrong.

It needs to BE serious and wrong.

You need to will the serious and wrong act.

I'm not sure someone who is in a state to take their own life is able to fulfil those....

Certainly I would never judge someone or say to a family, "Well, you know they died out of touch with God..." Not a human call to make.
