I find it ironic they want to help someone from not killing themselves but then when they fail they get put into a mental house and get tortured lol.2

It is kind of a dumb law. People can technically "do what they please," though; I mean you can't get sent to jail or anything once you're dead. People will do it regardless of whether it's legal or not.
It's called "suicide" because... well, we use words to describe certain actions. Suicide isn't a mental illness; things like depression and anxiety are mental illnesses.
Euthanization and assisted suicide (i. e. whether people with terminal illnesses or painful medical conditions should be able to end their lives via medication at their own will) is a whole different topic, though...1
