The attitude of the Church with regard to members who commit suicide is that no temple work can be done in their behalf, neither should public funeral services be held over their remains. Members committing suicide after receiving their endowments should not be buried in temple clothing.

[First Presidency, Letter to R. L. Bybee, as quoted in Minutes of the Apostles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 1835-1951, Electronic Edition, 2015]
