Interested in helping to transform lives through better mental health care?

More than 50 million Americans suffer from a behavioral health condition such as depression, anxiety, or substance abuse, and the current health care system is failing too many of them. The result is untold suffering for patients and their families — plus billions in avoidable costs.

To help Lyra organize and stay on top of the different legal requirements for our business we are seeking to add paralegal support to our legal and compliance team The Lyra legal team is responsible for navigating the state, federal (and international!) laws and regulations across multiple areas of law, including for EAPs and health plans, the practice of medicine and psychology, FDA regulation of digital apps, HIPAA and privacy, corporate and business law, employment, and intellectual property. As a part of the legal team you’ll help us to assess all aspects of a legal question for Lyra, and once we’ve come to an answer on any particular issue, we need help to ensure execution and compliance against that answer (and revisiting when necessary).
