Sadia Messaili was born in Morocco and is a primary school teacher and special needs educator in Montreal. She describes her personal journey as that of ?a good immigrant wherever she has lived: Algeria, Croatia, Austria and finally, Montreal, Quebec.? Her first book about forced migratory wandering is titled La route de la dignité.

"This is an important book for those that are on both sides of the mental health equation. It shows what a grieving parent goes through (?We grieve twice? she tells us) as they come up against a system that just does not work." James Fisher, The Miramichi Reader

?[Messaili] describes an environment that is coercive, punitive, and shaped to cater to doctors? egos rather than patients? needs. Instead of being listened to, Ferid [Messaili?s son] is drugged into submission? those who have tried to navigate the labyrinthine and under-resourced mental health system will find validation in [her] words.? Anne Thériault, Quill & Quire

?a necessary and relevant testimony ? about the failure of a system that is incapable to take care of the most vulnerable people and support their overwhelmed families.? La Presse
