The Docs

Wednesday, October 27th, 2010

The Naval Health Research Center (NHRC) has produced The Docs, a 200-page graphic novel, to help Navy Corpsmen with the stresses of combat deployments:

“The Docs” portrays four expeditionary Corpsmen from both active duty and Reserve components, who are deployed with Marine Corps and seabee units.

The story follows them as they grapple with having to kill enemy forces; struggle to save the lives of wounded Sailors and Marines; encounter home front problems such as injuries to their children, and other concerns that test their resilience.

In addition, they battle the stigma of seeking mental health care for their patients and for themselves, and gain greater awareness of their need to care for one another.
