How could I get my mother help if she is going crazy?
By crazy i'm not saying like we were just fighting. She started making crazy accusastions that like my friend who's living with me who's only 17 is supposedly with my father. My friends mother told my mother this because she wanted her to come home and thought it would get her home. My mother now believes and started yelling last night about how my father hasn't had sex with her since she was living here which I did not want to hear. She has no proof at all!! Because it's not true. She told my father that she was going to put him in jail and won't tell him or anyone else why. She kept telling my dad and myself to touch her so she could put us in jail. She locked all the doors in the house earlier today but missed her window so we used a ladder to get in. Earlier today my mother met with her mother and I believe they made something up to get him put in jail. My friends mother doesn't like my father because shes jealous that she's closer with him than her. She won't stop yelling!!!!

Wow, maybe your mom saw, that movie, I can't think of the name where the father fantasies about the friend of the daughter.
I know she sounds crazy and irrational, but THIS IS YOUR MOTHER, be on her side, the more you fight her the more you make the problem worse.
She sounds very frightened, comfort her love her, and get your friend out of the house.
My mom was very wacky, trying to kill herself often, but my dad was a bastard and Now that my mom is gone I would give anything to have her back. Nobody loves you like your mother loves you, wacky or not and there is the possibility she may not be that far off base, meaning she thinks her world is falling apart.
Loyalty to a friend is one thing, but what her mom did was !@#$%^ up. Be kind to your mom, she really needs you right now.
Hope all works out for you and your mom.
From my vast experience it is usually the good person that gets labeled wacky when in reality it is the heartless f@#$%%s that are causing the problem.Source(s): Suffering and compassion

There isin't going to be a perfect answer. What you are describing is a lot of people GOSSIPING and Gossip leads to a big mess every time.
If your mom is acting violent with you or others and I mean for reals. If she is doing things you know are not just things you do not like, but dangerous. You can call your local county mental health center and talk to a crisis worker there and tell them what's been going on and they can decide if they need to come see her for an evaluation. Don't do this though unless you are sure it's mental. She could have her life ruined if you are exaggerating. If you live at home with her, which is doesn't sound like you do. IF you are a minor and she gets locked away from being mental, you'd end up in foster care.
Your family seems to be in crisis, but what you decribe isn't necessarily mentally ill or crazy. It sounds like a lot of so and so, said this or that, so now Mom's reacting to what others said.
Think before you react, but if she is harming anyone physically she needs to have a mental health worker check her out.
I hope that things work out for you all--GOOD LUCK!

I feel you. Have you spoke to a counselor bout this? See if you can go to a friends house or fmily memeber who's not taking sides for a while. talk to some people try the helpline and see if they can suggest something for her. With the help of family maybe you can get the help she needs. Or find out what is causing these outbursts. It may cause some hate for awhile but in the end. Its whats best. Hate can be overlooked if a person is sick and need help. Sometimes not all medication works as it should though try to read up on anything they give out. But find someone who you can talk to older adult crisis counselor pastor a friend of the family. Anyone. Before it gets anymore out of hand.

Sounds like she's pissed off not crazy. There seems to be a lot of "he said she said" going on. Maybe if your 17 year old friend had stayed at her own house then maybe none of this would have started. If something did happen between your friend and your dad then he should be in jail and I understand your mothers anger issues.

No. you at the instant are not overreacting. Your reacting recommendations are thoroughly time-honored in this occasion. Your mom's movements in spite of the incontrovertible fact that would possibly not have been overreacting in her recommendations. There are factors that would make a contribution on your mom's reaction. they're as follows: -did you strengthen up an purely toddler? -replaced into your mom a single discern? i does not rigidity with reference to the region too a lot (existence is going on). i be attentive to truly some mothers that could react the same way. the appropriate thank you to handle this is to flow on your mom and purely civilly boost the form, thank her for her help, yet good ask her to enable you adventure those issues on your individual. you're sufficiently previous to shelter your self and he or she desires to appreciate that. wish this enables. good success.

Sounds like your mother is really emotionally distressed. It would be best if you called the YWCA in your town and ask what to do or call a help line.
If your mother and her mother told the police something that wasn't true, you need to talk to the police and tell them they made it up that it is a total lie.
One thing is for sure, when your dad gets an attorney find out who it is and call that person and tell them everything you know.
On tuesday morning call social services and ask them if they can help in anyway.

Sounds like this is between your mom and dad.I am sorry you have been dragged in between. There is nothing you can do for them. If it is possible for you to leave for a while and live with a relative or friend that would be the best for you. Get separated from the whole mess. Let your mom get crazy with your dad . They need to settle their own garbage and leave you out of it.

Wow not to be rude but that is some huge drama going on---a very personal but very serious question--is your Mom on drugs?? No I mean really?? She doesn't sound rational in her thinking--she also could have a hormonal imbalance--and that too is hard on her mentally--she sounds like she needs some professional help--she could end up hurting anyone involved as well as herself--

You could call the police and say that you believe that she will hurt herself, or you can go to court and get her involuntarlly committed. I don't think that you will have a problem doing either one.

If you think that shes is a danger to her self or others you can call the hospital and you can have her com-meted In to a place to get her some needed help
