Analyzing the impact of COVID-19 on the mental health of U.S. workers

In just a few weeks, the COVID-19 pandemic has dramatically changed the way we work, and it’s clear that the changes are impacting employee mental health, well-being, and productivity. Employees are struggling to adapt amid fears about health, job security, and the economy. Lyra analyzed data from thousands of clients in care and surveyed several hundred of our mental health clinicians to create a report to help understand how COVID-19 is impacting American workers in both obvious and under the radar ways.

The report highlights:

  • How the pandemic has impacted work and productivity
  • The types of symptoms providers are seeing worsen during the pandemic
  • Troubling increase in thoughts of self-harm or suicide
  • Best practices to support employees’ mental health
