In brief: See below

Depending on the severity of her sx and her level of functioning, you might want to address your concerns with your mom directly.
You might want to start with her physician to rule out anything physical. If your mom expresses thoughts of self-or other-harm, or she can no longer cope with her symptoms, just dial 911 or take her to the nearest er. Good luck!
