I don't think the term "asylum" is used anymore - there are mental health facilities and in-patient hospital programs that treat those with mental illness. It's important that you mother get a proper diagnosis and treatment ASAP. Below are some links that might help.

WebMD's Crisis Resources might be a good place to start to find some help for your mom:

SAMHSA's National Mental Health Information Center
Phone: 1-877-SAMHSA-7 (1-877-726-4727)
