JEAN-FRANCOIS DUPRAS BIOGRAPHY

Jean-Francois Dupras is originally from Québec, but he have been living in Canmore Alberta for the past 15 years. Most of his life Jean-Francois have been looking for a career opportunity where he could help people, just to realize, a few years ago that he was the one that needed help first.

It was following traumatic events in his early teens that Jean-Francois Dupras began to be affected by depression, without really knowing it. At that moment in his life, Jean-Francois Dupras tried every possible means to free himself from this suffering that prevented him from living a normal life. From substance abuse, stealing and gambling, he tried to live any high sensations that would make him feel alive again, without success. At the age of 20 years old, he felt more confused, lost and frustrated than ever before, until one night he decided to end his life.

Over the next few years, Jean-Francois Dupras went through several phases related to depression. Finally 5 years ago after a work related injury and a second depression, he made the hardest decision of his life, harder than any mountains he ever climbed and decided to seek professional help. That decision changed his life forever. It was only with the help of medication and professional guidance, that Jean-Francois Dupras have been able to make peace with his past, to love himself and to simply enjoy life. From that point on, not only did he start to live a better life, but Jean-Francois Dupras decided to help and inspire other people.

Shortly after,  Jean-Francois created a project called “Overcoming mental illness” One summit at a time, his mission with his project and his talks is to share his story in order to raise awareness about mental health, still misunderstood by the majority of the population, and to demonstrate the importance of listening to one’s passion and following one’s dreams. We all have a mountain to climb!

Jean-Francois Dupras dream is to climb the 7 summits, the highest summit on each of the seven continents in the name of mental health. Climbing the 7 summits is a mental and physical accomplishment only completed by less than 430 persons worldwide and only few Canadians.
