Many treatments practiced today are ineffective.
Lyra only delivers the most effective care.

Lyra uses validated clinical measures, such as the PHQ-9 and the GAD-7, to assess symptom improvement for anxiety, depression, and other common mental health issues. Reliable clinical change is a 6-point difference on the PHQ-9 and a 4-point change on the GAD-7.

88% stat

88% of Lyra’s members improve or recover.

Grounded in proven treatment methods

Evidence-based treatments, or EBTs, are methods that have been proven effective at reducing symptoms and overall functioning, as defined by the Division of Clinical Psychology of the APA (Chambless & Hollon, 1998; Tolin et al., 2015). Lyra only works with providers who provide these treatments.

The gold standard of measuring improvement

At Lyra, we use “reliable clinical improvement” to measure change, which means that an individual in treatment has improved enough on a measure of clinical symptoms that we don’t believe the change can be accounted for by normal variation in scores or measurement error.
