Hello, I’m Spring Tallant and I’m the Central Region’s Support Outreach Worker for MDAM.
I presently reside in Brandon, MB with my two beautiful cats, and have been an advocate for, and involved with Mood Disorders Association of Westman over the past 25 years.
My background as a former RCMP Officer, E911 Telecommunications Operator/Dispatcher, Office Manager for the Brandon Youth Soccer Association, and as a self-employed Private Home Daycare Provider for the past 16 years has provided me with a love of working with people from all walks of life!
I have a strong desire to see eradication of the stigma that surrounds people who live with mental illnesses and mood disorders. It is my mission to be a voice of advocacy and support to help others on their paths towards mental wellness.
In my leisure time, I enjoy creative writing, music, nature walks, cooking and baking, and dabble a little bit with pencil drawing and photography, with my pets as my favorite subjects!
