"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
