Felo de se

Felo de se” is a Latin phrase that translates to “felon of himself” or “suicide” in English. It is a historical and legal term used to describe the act of intentionally taking one’s own life. In many legal systems, suicide was once considered a crime, and individuals who attempted or completed suicide could face legal consequences. However, modern understanding and attitudes towards suicide have evolved, and it is now generally considered a mental health issue rather than a criminal act.
