Mount Sinai Tisch Cancer Center

Center of Excellence for Cancer Support Services

Cancer affects the mind and spirit as well as the body. A diagnosis of cancer and cancer treatment can cause significant distress for patients and their families. Support services at the Mount Sinai Health System can help you manage physical symptoms, emotional issues, and spiritual concerns you may have with cancer. We strive to help our patients maintain a positive outlook and well-being.

In addition to cancer-specific physicians, the Cancer Support Services team includes social workers, psychiatrists, dietitians, chaplains, and child life therapists. We focus on you as a whole person with individual needs that may change over time. We work with you and your loved ones to evaluate your concerns and develop a customized plan to help you cope.

Cancer support services are available at locations throughout the Mount Sinai Health System. On-site social workers and other members of your oncology care team can help you access these services.
