Why We Work
Our mission is to transform behavioral health care through technology with a human touch, to help people feel emotionally healthy at work and at home.
For most people, great mental health care is really hard to find.
We connect companies and their employees to mental health care that is effective, convenient, and personalized to their needs.
We are revolutionizing how people find and receive care.
In fact, Lyra helps people get care 21x faster and experience 3x better outcomes, which means they feel better, faster.
What do employees value about Lyra?
We asked Lyrians what they love most about working here. Here’s what they told us.
We are mission-driven.
No matter your role at Lyra, you’ll hear real-life stories of how your work is improving people’s lives and see it at scale in the results we share with our customers. We are proud of what we’re doing.
People often tell us Lyra is life-changing and we share those stories in daily standups, Slack channels, and more.
We are empathetic.
Perhaps the mental health field attracts a certain type, but everyone remarks on how kind, thoughtful, and empathetic people are at Lyra. It’s a supportive place where smart people work, laugh, grow, and learn.
One of our therapists recently held a lunch-and-learn to show us even more ways to cultivate empathy.
We are data obsessed.
We’re building a high-tech solution to an age-old problem and using data to inform and validate our approach every step of the way. We are learning more about effective treatment than ever before.
We set measurable goals company-wide each month to guide our focus and measure our impact every step of the way.

Life at Lyra
Daily life inside Lyra sometimes feels more like home than office. Here are two reasons why.
We host weekly lunch-and-learns led by Lyrians and experts on mental health, psychotherapy, tech, data insights, and more. It’s an opportunity for us to get together as one big team and learn something new.
We love dogs. Bring your pup to the office, share your latest insta-worthy shots on several slack channels dedicated to pet love. And if you love dogs so much you want to dress as one, no judgment here.
