Lyra Health To Expand Mental Health Services & Support For Adolescent Mental Health & Families

Lyra Health, which provides global workforce mental health solutions, plans to expand its support for whole family care to help parents and caregivers find child mental health care and services for families with complex situations. The new initiatives include expanding its provider organization network, new digital content created for adolescents, expanded coaching for parents, and care navigation for autism treatment. Lyra’s enhanced suite of solutions to support entire families will be available in 2023.

The Lyra Health network currently provides access to more than 3,900 specialized providers for children ages 0 to 17 in the U.S. The service line expansion will focus on the following:

Enhanced Therapy for Teens — Lyra is bringing together evidence-based therapists with digital content created expressly for adolescents, utilizing Lyra’s proven technology-enabled model that combines video- based therapy with between-session digital lessons, exercises, guides, and assessments tailored to the unique needs of each teenager in care. Teens will gain access to personalized plans as well as 1:1 messaging with their provider between sessions, all via the Lyra app or web experience. Lyra’s providers have calendars available for instant booking, as well as availability during evenings and weekends.

Expanded Coaching programs for parents and caregivers — Lyra is enhancing its Coaching offering to provide parents and caregivers with guidance, teach new skills, and address common parenting challenges such as life transitions, tantrums, and bullying. Coaches will work with parents to build a custom care plan. Between-session exercises will help parents practice skills. Video lessons will be available on demand. Additionally, members will have unlimited access to coaching support via 1:1 messaging.

Personalized Care Navigation for Autism Spectrum Disorder —As part of its concierge program for Advanced Care Coordination solutions, Lyra will introduce 1:1 support to help parents and caregivers connect with provider organizations specializing in screening, diagnosis, and treatment for autism spectrum disorder. A Lyra Health care navigator will help the member find professionals, coordinate care, and provide resources and education to promote advocacy.

Lyra Health provides workforce mental health benefits for 10 million global employees and their dependents. Its model uses intelligent matching technology, concierge support, and an innovative digital platform to deliver a frictionless experience for members, providers, and employers. Lyra quickly connects members to an exclusive network of evidence-based providers, mental health coaches, digital wellness
tools, and personalized medication programs. Lyra’s approach to mental health care has been proven to help members improve or recover faster and reduce medical claims costs for employers.
