Do you believe that a perfectly good person who commits suicide (regardless of circumstances) goes to Heaven or the Underworld?
Some say it’s an automatic ticket to below. But I don’t want to believe that as some people really are depressed and just can’t take anymore. So I want to think they can go to Heaven as long as they were a good person and didn’t do anything really wrong in life.

Suicide is NOT the unpardonable sin! The Lord Himself stated that "all manner of sin and blasphemy will be
forgiven men but he that blasphemes the Holy Ghost hath never forgiveness" This sin cannot be committed in this day and age as the circumstances under which it was committed do not exist today. Basically, it amounted to
knowingly, deliberately, willfully, publicly state that the miracles that Jesus performed were performed by the power of Satan which was the case when the Pharisees accused Jesus publicly of working His miracles by the power of Satan. The Pharisees knew full well that Jesus was the Son of God and that the miracles He was performing were by the power of the Holy Ghost. The Pharisees hated the Lord because He was a threat to their
position and did everything to discredit Him. All believers who trust Jesus as their Savior will go the heaven regardless of circumstances here on earthSource(s): King James Bible, Bible teacher, born again

Nobody knows for sure, but there are no good human beings. We are all born with bad genes from Adam. We are born spiritually dead in his trespasses and sins, so whether a person committed suicide or not is not relevant.
As far as we know, Christians would never commit suicide. If someone dies for any reason without first accepting Christ as Saviour and worshipping and obeying Him in this life, they will automatically go to Hell because nobody is good and we cannot get to heaven by being good or else Jesus died for nothing.
Jesus is the ONLY WAY TO THE FATHER (John 14:6).
So EVERYONE must believe, receive and worship Jesus Christ as Saviour if they want to enter heaven. We cannot get there on our own good deeds, for our own works of righteousness are called "Self righteousness" and they are as filthy rags in God's sight.

A Bible answer would include John 12:48 and Hebrews 9:27. Compare Romans 3:23.

Technically Jesus committed suicide and if he didn't then he didn't know what he was doing here
on earth .
If he did know what he was doing he knew he would die and when and what for .
If he did not know all of that and died he could not of died for everyone's sins
unless he had a magic 8 ball that retrofitted his death as functional ..
As far as where they go - My brother went to the morgue

I believe in reincarnation, because you must be born again to be saved.

Nobody is a good person. We are all sinners. The person you described goes to hell, since they didn't believe the Gospel of Jesus Christ. So suicide took them to eternal torment in the lake of fire.
The Gospel of Jesus Christ: The truth is that death leads to immediate heaven or hell, depending only on whether the person believed in Jesus for eternal life, or not.
The truth is that Jesus loves you and wants to bless your life freely :) Most of all, Jesus wants you with Him forever, and not in hell. The truth is that every belief except one will lead to eternal torment in the lake of fire for every person. Because nothing pays for our sins except the death and blood of Jesus, the sacrifice of Jesus that is already accomplished by Him . Jesus loves you! The truth is that Jesus is God, and Jesus died on the cross to pay for all of our sins in full, and then Jesus resurrected from the dead. Nothing else pays for our sins, not works, not deeds, not religions. So the only way to heaven and to avoid hell, is by believing in Jesus for eternal life (John 6:47), without adding any of your own works (Romans 4:5). Believe in Jesus to take you to heaven, and you will be in heaven, no matter what, guaranteed. That easy, thanks to Jesus! Tell Jesus that you thank Him that you will be with Him in heaven when you die, because you believe in Jesus! It is too late to be saved, after death

God raises up the dead and that this might well include ones who because of depression, mental illness, or despair took their own lives.
While suicide cannot be justified, it is comforting to remember that the future prospects of our loved ones rest with a God who fully understands that weaknesses and frailties could push one to such desperate action.
if a person succumbs to suicidal feelings, bereaved ones can take comfort in knowing that their loved one’s future is in the hands of a loving God.
In putting departed souls in heaven, hell, or purgatory you destroy the arguments wherewith Christ and Paul prove the resurrection.
centuries ago, churchmen introduced a non-Biblical concept: immortal souls that leave the body at death and go straight to heaven, purgatory, Limbo, or hell.
That concept clashed with the Bible’s clear teaching of a future resurrection.
God is within his right to extend mercy, even to some self-murderers, by resurrecting them and giving them the opportunity to repent and turn to God by doing works that befit repentance.

Since no evidence suggests that either Heaven or an Underworld exist, and since there is no evidence that we have any consciousness after death, this is entirely moot.

I dont believe in an afterlife. If a God would punish someone for suicide, they are a cruel God unworthy of worship.
