From Overwhelming to Easy: Brianna’s Lyra Story

Sep 17, 2020

By The Lyra Team

As a high achiever, Brianna has always been dedicated to doing her best in every scenario. But, like a lot of people, she also struggles with anxiety, which can get in the way of her personal and professional goals. She knew that something had to change, but when she tried to find a therapist to support her mental health, she found a series of dead ends. After coming up with a list of over twenty therapists, it seemed that each one she contacted was unavailable: they either didn’t call her back, had full voicemail boxes, or were booked months in advance.

If this situation sounds familiar to you, it’s because Brianna’s story is not uncommon–a lack of available providers, long wait times, and low therapeutic compatibility are all typical obstacles to finding a therapist through traditional health care plans. The search for a therapist left Brianna defeated, hopeless, and exhausted–until she learned about the Lyra benefit offered by her employer.

Ensuring members never have to worry about finding a provider, out-of-network fees, or going without treatment, so they can focus on getting the care they need and feeling better.
