We are transforming behavioral health from start to finish
Our mission is to transform behavioral health care through technology with a human touch.
Mental health is the defining problem of our time
In the United States 50 million people suffer from mental health issues every year. The biggest hurdle isn’t treatment—it’s access. Lyra’s co-founder and CEO, David Ebersman, left his job as Facebook’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 effective.
Since then, more than 40 leading companies have partnered to offer Lyra’s mental health benefits to their employees, including Facebook, Pinterest and Starbucks, giving more than a million people access to life-changing care.
Since our founding in 2015, we’ve achieved many accomplishments together as a team. Here are a few of our proudest moments.
