Sounds like signs of PMV-1. I'm not sure what "suiciding" is but maybe going face down? With a lot of head twisting and star-gazing? You will need to hand-feed the bird if it's not eating, this is treatable so please wait for others' advice. Also keep him warm and quiet if you can, a heating pad set on low with a towel over it is ideal.

...could also be shock from a blow to the head...I had my little friend, Pal (rescued from a hawk attack by member Ivor) displaying those symptoms (minus the 'suiciding'...which I also dunno what that means) and I figured it was PMV and that's why the hawk got her initially...

BUT...turned out to resolve within a few days on some anti-inflammatories and ciproflaxin....so it wasn't PMV...it was just some neurological thing which supportive care and some meds got her over very quickly...
