Stress can lead to clinical anxiety and depression requiring medication and, sometimes, psychological or psychiatric input.
Stress is known to increase the risk of high blood pressure, heart disease and an irregular heart beat called Atrial Fibrillation (which has health implications).
Destructive coping strategies have negative effects on health: use of alcohol can lead to liver disease and addiction issues; unhealthy eating/snacking and reduced exercise can lead to weight gain, heart disease and diabetes; smoking is a causative factor for many diseases.
