Lyra was founded to solve a problem that seemed intractable. A problem affecting millions. 20% of people suffer from a mental health issue every year. Only 1 in 7 receive effective care. It’s difficult to know where to turn when you need help for your mental and emotional health. The mental health system falls short in about every way.
Our mission is to transform behavioral health care through technology with a human touch, to help people feel emotionally healthy at work and at home. Lyra connects companies and their employees to mental health care that is effective, convenient, and personalized to their needs.
We use data and machine learning to understand each patient’s needs and to intelligently match them to the best care for their symptoms, preferences, and lifestyle. We have a network of the highest quality therapists in the country, who are committed to evidence-based techniques that are proven to help people improve. We help providers manage their practice, find ideal patients for their expertise, and deliver more effective, data-driven care. We complement provider-led care with dynamic, personalized digital experiences that enhance treatment effectiveness and deliver faster results. We measure outcomes to ensure our patients are getting better. Our innovative business model and tech-enabled approach helps companies support the diverse emotional and mental health needs of their workforce, enhance employee productivity, and retain top talent.
