New Studies From Lyra Clinical Research
Lyra Clinical Research recently had two peer-reviewed studies examining the impact of Lyra Care published by The Journal of Racial and Ethnic Health Disparities and JMIR Formative Research. Lyra Care blends evidence-based therapy or coaching with interactive digital content and exercises, and is proven to help nine out of 10 people get better. Key findings from the recently published peer-reviewed studies include:

  • Lyra Care’s culturally responsive therapy program yields equitable and strong clinical outcomes at scale and across racial and ethnic groups, with clients experiencing statistically significant decreases in symptoms of anxiety and depression (Journal of Racial and Ethnic Health Disparities).
  • Lyra Care’s live messaging available in its coaching program has strong clinical benefits for moderate levels of anxiety, with 86 percent of participants experiencing reliable improvement or recovery from anxiety symptoms (JMIR Formative Research).

“Lyra, in partnership with Lyra Clinical Associates, has established a groundbreaking, exclusive network of mental health care providers, supported with ongoing training and oversight from clinical managers who consult on challenging cases and provide exceptional development opportunities,” said Anita Lungu, PhD, vice president of clinical product, Lyra Health. “As providers, we hold ourselves accountable through external reviews of our care models and are proud to have developed programs that yield impressive, validated outcomes.
