McCains want to erase stigma of mental illness

Edwina McCain is on a mission. She wants to erase the stigma attached to mental illness.

"For so long, little Aunt Tilly either stayed in the attic or in the basement. She was eccentric. And most families had someone like that," said the 62-year-old accounting clerk with the Mississippi Department of Corrections.

McCain, of Greenwood, has seen mental illness both as a wife and as a mother.

An adult son from a previous marriage suffers from the same malady.
