Complete and Comprehensive

With Lyra, no one is left behind. Lyra supports all members, including children ages 0-17, and offers Guided Self-Care, Mental Health Coaching, and mental wellness tools in addition to therapy and medication management.

Reliably evidence based

Lyra consistently provides effective evidence-based care. Sixteen published papers prove our quality is real. We’ll even agree to give you some money back if your member population doesn’t make enough clinical improvement.

Blended Care for better member results

Not only does Lyra solve the access problem, we transform the actual care delivered to members. Our proprietary Lyra Care offering enables members to get better, faster.

Icon - Pricing Checklist

Transparent pricing and utilization

With Lyra, you pay when your members get care. Unfortunately, other companies will make you pay a flat rate regardless of how many members engage—and oftentimes member engagement is lower than promised.
