About the Role

Lyra is a re-imagined EAP, a comprehensive mental health solution, that delivers high-quality care with measurable results.

Our physicians practice in a collaborative care model, closely consulting with psychiatrists and primary care physicians to provide clients with easily-accessible, culturally-responsive, high-quality mental health care. You always have a team behind you, even while working remotely. And our technology platform makes it easy to refer patients to therapy and coaching services in tandem with your care.
