Covid-19 Response

Lieber Recovery Clinic

 

The Lieber Clinic continues to provide care, community, and education during the Corona Virus (Covid-19) outbreak. We know that the current global situation can invoke anxiety, and precautions meant to reduce risk of infection spread can increase social isolation. Now, more than ever, it is imperative that people find ways to stay connected to one another, and have mental health support. Further, it is our goal to minimize disruption to ongoing services to our current clients. We will continue to facilitate these goals in accordance with guidance from health officials and policies of Columbia University with whom we are affiliated, by providing our clinical services via virtual/telehealth sessions, and will return to in person sessions when conditions allow.
