Anton Cross

MSW, LSW

As a master’s degree holder in Social Work it is my belief that humankind will continue to grow toward maturity and productivity if not hindered by discrimination, lack of opportunity, oppression and other environmental obstacles. The purpose of society is to enhance the life and opportunity of humankind. I am here to serve my fellow man and that is why I use a multi-system framework approach with the assumption that human events can best be understood in their context. I am also dedicated to the overall Mental Mental Health of Black People and how it relates to their daily functioning and having their bio-psychosocial needs met.
