January 28, 2021 — 08:00 AM Eastern Daylight Time, BURLINGAME, Calif. — Lyra Health, the leading provider of comprehensive mental health care benefits for employers, today announced it is partnering with ICAS World to support members in more than 180 countries. ICAS is a global employee assistance program (EAP) provider with operations in more than 43 in-country offices, covering 2,400 organizations and 4.5 million people. The partnership will enable leading companies to standardize access to quality, comprehensive mental health care for their employees around the world.
While benefits through other EAPs can vary by country, this partnership delivers to global customers and members consistent access to best-in-class, technology-enabled mental health solutions. This includes coaching, therapy, self-care, critical incident support, a 24/7 care line, manager training, worklife services, and workshops.
“The amplified need for mental health care isn’t limited to the U.S. — this is an issue that affects people around the world, and one that is increasingly urgent due to the COVID pandemic,” said Sean McBride, VP, Partnerships at Lyra. “Lyra is dedicated to transforming mental health care for both individuals and employers on a global scale, and we’re proud to work with ICAS to continue to support companies that are making mental health and well-being a priority for their people and leading by example.”
Lyra selected ICAS as its partner for its shared focus on clinical quality, its flexibility to scale with Lyra, and its high level of service, which reflects localized knowledge such as how to combat regionalized stigmas surrounding mental illness.
“ICAS is proud to combine our robust network and local providers with Lyra’s innovative approach to delivering mental health care,” said Andrew Davies, CEO of ICAS World. “Our joint efforts deliver a powerful support system for companies and their employees around the world, raising the level of access and care to match the accelerating demand worldwide.”
