Where do suicides go after death if they are mentally ill???

Does the Bible say anything about this?

None of us truly knows where anyone goes. That’s up to God alone. If someone is so mentally ill that they don’t understand their behaviour is wrong or cannot control their behaviour, then they can’t technically commit a mortal sin.

Here's a homily that was given at a Catholic funeral for a teenager who committed suicide that sheds light on the situation.

I recommend reading the book "The Catholic Guide to Depression" by Aaron Kheriaty as well.
