Every Mind Care Ltd
Mental Health Care covering Surrey and North East Hampshire
Steven Melton DipSW
I started working in the social care field in 1995. I have been a qualified Social Worker since 2001 and have gained a wide range of knowledge and experience.
I initially supported those with a severe learning disability in a residential setting, working up to become the deputy Manager.
I then moved on to a Community Mental Health Team in 1998, and subsequently qualified as an approved Social Worker in 2003, now known as an Approved Mental Health Professional, which is a role I also performed. I have worked in Surrey and Hampshire in the now Community Mental Health Recovery services up until 2010.
I saw a lack of specialist mental health agencies supporting people in their own homes and felt that there should be such a company and I am driven to create an agency that can fill this need and provide a service that all connected to it can be proud of.
Prior to joining Steve in 2012 I had eight years’ experience working with older people, I worked up to the role of a coordinator for care which meant that I had to model good practice to other staff members, attend to client’s needs as and when required and I enjoyed attending care plan reviews and including the client and making them central to this process. I naturally came into contact with older people with mental health problems and found that I enjoyed the challenge of working alongside them. I wanted to further my education in this area and I am focused on increasing my knowledge in this field, I have now extensive experience working alongside clients who have a diagnosis of schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and personality disorder to my existing knowledge and experience of working alongside people who have dementia and challenging behaviour. I am committed and gain great satisfaction in working to improve the quality of life to the clients I see.
