Mental health is the defining problem of our time

Worldwide, 970 million people are living with mental health issues. The biggest hurdle isn’t treatment—it’s access. Lyra’s co-founder and CEO, David Ebersman, left his job as Meta’s chief financial officer in 2014 to tackle the problem by making it easier to find and get treatment and using technology to make it smarter, more personalized, and more effective.

Since then, more than 300 leading companies have partnered to offer Lyra’s mental health benefits to their employees, including Meta, Pinterest, and Starbucks, giving more than 15 million people access to life-changing care.
