In 1991, Eddie Vedder told the Canadian journalist Karen Bliss: "When you're inside and you have no control and when you're the 14-year-old version of Frances Farmer
, you have reasons to be angry. You have reasons to be angry when your parents, who are very sheltered themselves, make decisions as to what you should experience in your life and what's normal and what's not. And then you've got institutions on the other side, who are taking large money amounts of money through insurance companies by diagnosing their children unfit."
"It's happening a lot in American suburbs," he added. "People who don't really pay a lot of attention to their kids and don't really know how to deal with them, they just put their kids in hospitals."
