Default Air Force Logo Comprehensive Airman Fitness: Mental stability
For a machine to function properly, the screws must be set, balance maintained and gaskets must be in good repair.

Recognized as one of the four domains of Comprehensive Airman Fitness, the Air Force describes mental wellness as “the ability to effectively cope with unique mental stressors and challenges needed to ensure mission readiness.”
