Lyra Health and Children’s Hospital Association’s New Vendor Relationship to Offer Mental Health Benefits to Leading Health Care Organizations

Stanford Medicine Children’s Health and Children’s Minnesota partner with Lyra to provide mental health care support for their employees and dependents 

February 7, 2024 — 08:00 AM ET, BURLINGAME, Calif.Lyra Health, the leading provider of innovative Workforce Mental Health solutions for employers and the Children’s Hospital Association (CHA), the national voice for more than 200 children’s hospitals, today announced they have a new vendor relationship to offer life-changing mental health solutions to all CHA member hospitals. As part of this relationship, CHA member hospitals will now have preferred access to Lyra’s evidenced-based mental health offerings for their employees and dependents. 

“CHA was struck by the impressive track record Lyra has established with leading health care organizations such as Stanford Medicine Children’s Health and Children’s Minnesota,” said Kristie Seibert, Director of Insurance Advisory Services for CHA. “Our member community holds the highest standards of care for their patients, families, and workforce, and Lyra is consistently endorsed by the most discerning health systems as the partner of choice.”

Caring for Caregivers
The mental wellbeing of health care workers is in crisis. More than one in five physicians reported experiencing depression, according to Medscape. And a recent American Hospital Association Survey notes that 93% of health care workers reported stress, 86% reported anxiety, 76% reported exhaustion and burnout, and 75% said they were overwhelmed. Leading health care institutions, such as Stanford Medicine Children’s Health, are taking new steps to support the mental wellbeing of medical professionals, including therapy and coaching as well as workshops and education.

“Lyra’s clinician-led workshops, specifically designed for those exposed to trauma and distressing events, have been instrumental in helping our team members understand the impact of the trauma and give them evidence-based coping strategies to improve their overall well-being,” said Andrea Billings, Benefits Program Manager at Stanford Medicine Children’s Health. “Our organization thinks a lot about ways to combat burnout, compassion fatigue, trauma, and other psychosocial stressors facing our workforce. Working with Lyra has helped us support our employees with every aspect of their mental health and empowered us to promote a safer workplace for all.”

“Lyra and CHA understand the critical need to provide health care workers and their families with easy access to life changing mental health care, from wellness and preventive care to support for the most severe conditions,” said Sean McBride, chief revenue officer, Lyra Health.  “We are honored to support the employees and dependents of Stanford Medicine Children’s Health and Children’s Minnesota, and many other health care organizations, and we look forward to engaging with CHA member hospitals to support their people and their families.”
