What Obligations Should Churches Have In These Situations?

Court sides with diocese after man commits suicide

The state Superior Court reaffirmed today the Catholic Diocese of Pittsburgh's right to stop providing mental health treatment for a man who claimed he was abused by a priest in the 1980s.
 
Michael R. Unglo had a history of attempting suicide. In May 2010, at least a month after the church announced that it would stop paying for his care, Mr. Unglo killed himself.
 
His brother later sued the diocese alleging negligence, but the case was thrown out of Allegheny County Common Pleas Court...
"The soul is dyed the color of its thoughts. Think only on those things that are in line with your principles and can bear the light of day. The content of your character is your choice. Day by day, what you do is who you become. Your integrity is your destiny--it is the light that guides your way." - Heraclitus
