How Lyra Can Help

Access the best therapists, mental health coaches and resources using Lyra’s interactive online platform so you can feel better faster:

Free and confidential services – 16 sessions per person, per year (services available to US benefits-eligible employees and their dependents). Note: You do not need to be enrolled in the Morgan Stanley medical plan to use Lyra.

Solution-focused care – Short-term therapy or coaching can help if your emotions, thoughts or behaviors are negatively affecting your life, or if you’re facing a difficult life situation. Lyra providers specialize in clinically proven treatment that help you better understand yourself, so you can address those challenges and find stability.

Convenient options for busy lives – Schedule a video or in-person appointment as soon as the next day. Or, use self-care tools on the go. New York City employees may also meet with the onsite counselor at the 1585 Broadway Health Center.
