You asked :
What really happens to a soul when someone takes their own life?
- The Motivation
- The Awareness
- The Action
- The Result
- The ripening aspect result – lower realm rebirth for a very long time. And three resultant sufferings in the human realm:
- The result similar to the cause – getting killed by others
- Possessed result, to do with the place – whatever view you hold is bad, the appearance you see is bad, living in a very dusty place, medicines, food become harmful to you and can cause harm, sickness and death.
- Creating the result similar to the cause – again you kill because of the past imprint of killing then you engage again and again in that negative karma.

Why would the soul be connected to religion?

I like to think that god puts most of the suicide souls in a recylcing bin. Not the good recycling bin, the one for idiots, to be made into cockroaches.
Some suicides are honorable and god rewards honor, but most are just pathetic attempts for attention.

If a body is energy, water, and carbon, then obviously carbon and water will dissapate. Energy will not stop, or go away.
In fact, any emotional issue is saved in the energy-body, so killing the physical body is a silly non-solution. It could even magnify the problem because rather than dealing with it, one tries to escape.

In my opinion the reason the problem over which the person commit suicide will not be gone in the afterlife. Suicide is no escape, he`ll still have to confront, process and move beyond whatever the problem was. While it may not manifest in the same way "on the other side", the energy itself (which is what a human IS, whether embodied or not) does not just go away if you kill yourself.
But, what it boils down to is that it is not always a 'negative thing' to kill one's own self.
