Advancing mental health through clinical research

Working to improve mental health care for everyone.

Evidence-based care at scale

With more than 15 million members, Lyra can evaluate new approaches to mental health care at scale. We can prove the effectiveness of treatments for historically underrepresented groups, such as people from diverse racial and ethnic backgrounds, to help promote care equity.

Research with real-world impact

Our network of more than 10,000 providers gives us insight into millions of sessions and clinical outcomes. Lyra's dedicated mental health platform allows us to collect data from real-world clinical practice and validate the outcomes from that research-backed care.
