As the workforce mental health provider for more than 2 million Americans, Lyra Health is transforming the way companies care for the well-being of employees and their families.

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a massive impact on the global workforce and its collective mental health. In a recent survey, nearly 1 in 4 American workers reported feeling burnt out “very often” or “always.”

It’s no surprise then that many have reevaluated what work means to them. More than 33 million U.S. workers have left their jobs since April 2021, in a phenomenon dubbed The Great Resignation.

This event highlighted what employers were already starting to realize: Workers need to feel supported and valued in order to be engaged and productive.

“In dealing with issues such as chronic stress and burnout, people feel overwhelmed and unable to perform their job fully,” said Joe Grasso, Ph.D., clinical psychologist and senior director of workforce mental health at Lyra. “As a consequence, they pull back from work. They’re also susceptible to presenteeism, meaning they are mentally elsewhere even if they’re physically working.”

Transforming mental health

Offered as a benefit for self-insured companies, Lyra Health is changing the way employers across the globe offer mental healthcare services.

With Lyra, your employees and their dependents can access a network of world-class therapists, mental health coaches, and more. Appointments are available the same day you book (the national average wait time for a mental health visit is three weeks).

Plus, employees who have Lyra have 24/7 access to live messaging with mental health professionals and unlimited access to self-led cognitive behavioral therapy lessons and exercises.

“Organizations should prioritize psychological safety and mental wellness while modeling healthy self-care behaviors,” said Grasso. “Having a quality mental health benefit is a part of that equation.”

More than 1 in 5 Americans has a mental health issue like depression or anxiety. If employers want an engaged workforce, they need to end the stigma and support their employees’ mental health.
