There is indeed evidence that chronic severe depression, especially if untreated, and chronic stress and anxiety, again especially if untreated, CAN have a negative impact on oyur physical health in many different ways. It can interfere with our immunity to infections, for instance, and can increase the riskm of heart attacks, etc, perghaps through the increase in risk of high blood pressure. And of course some people in efect commit suicide, not by doing anything to harm themselves, but by doing nothing that is necessary to protect themselves, like the chronic diabetic who does not use their medicine properly.
