Diversity Initiative

National Therapy Center is proud to support and address racial inequality and social injustices. As part of this effort, we are proud to have produced this video, starring Mallory Lewis with Lambchop and Brian Cummings, to help children better understand diversity. Stay tuned for future additional resources and videos we are committed to producing to help foster an environment that encourages and supports diversity.
