Mental Health Marketing & PR Case Study: LGBTQ Therapy Space

Introducing a New Online Therapy Platform to Diverse Audiences

LGBTQ Therapy Space is the first LGBTQ-owned and operated national online therapy platform for the LGBTQ+ community. The platform connects LGBTQ+ clients with quality local licensed therapists who have a first-hand knowledge of the challenges and experiences LGBTQ+ people face. A service of this magnitude required an experienced mental health marketing and public relations partner to bring its brand to the forefront.

Jake Myers, a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, founded LGBTQ Therapy Space in 2021. He recognized a need for LGBTQ-affirmative therapists nationwide, prompting him to launch the innovative mental health platform.

Myers reached out to us to help establish the platform’s position as the first LGBTQ-owned and operated online therapy platform in the United States. As a Certified LGBT Business Enterprise, we were uniquely positioned to develop and execute a mental health marketing and PR strategy that secured quality media coverage and generated meaningful growth across the brand’s social media platforms and SEO efforts.

Quality Media Coverage Across Platforms

We secured media coverage for LGBTQ Therapy Space across traditional and digital media platforms, including:

Fan Mail

"My company was brand new, so there was a lot of work ahead, but we are really on track now and moving in the right direction, and a lot of that is due to The Postcard Agency. We did a press outreach that included some great media training, got some great articles published, built a social media following, and are now ranking on Google for a bunch of different keywords. What more can you ask for?! I felt very "seen" in our calls, and like I had someone on my side. Great agency!"
