How We Can Help You Stay Calm and Connected during COVID-19


In stressful times like these, it is important to stay connected. Memorial Sloan Kettering is here to support you and your loved ones during the COVID-19 pandemic. Our team of specialists can help you manage some of the challenging feelings you may be facing.

Individual Support

Social workers help to provide emotional support and guidance to people with cancer, their friends, families, and caregivers. They can also help with some of the practical aspects of having cancer, such as transportation assistance and the impact on your job. To speak with a social worker, ask your MSK doctor or nurse or call the Department of Social Work at 212-639-7020.

Chaplains provide multi-faith support. They listen to and address your concerns with a comforting presence. You can speak with a chaplain by calling 212-639-5982.

Mind-Body Recordings: Any time day or night, you can visit our Meditation Station to access our library of audio and video recordings to calm your mind, relax your body, and help you sleep.

Social Work Virtual Support Groups

Processing the experience of cancer and COVID-19 during social isolation can be challenging. Sharing your thoughts and feelings with people in similar circumstances can help you gain a sense of support. Special programming is now available online. See the schedule here.
