Schizophrenia is diagnosed only if lasts for 1 month or more and usually it is diagnosed after about 6 months. Your mother may have been suffering from either psychotic mood disorders or brief psychotic disorder. In both cases the chance of recovery is much better than schizophrenia. So, get a consultation done with a psychiatrist.
