You can't be strong enough for both of you, and it doesn't help to try. Make sure your mom is seeing a proper psychiarist locally for assessment and treatment, and encourage her to stick with it and work towards impovement. You can encourage, but you can't do it for her.
Meanwhile, look after yourself - don't add her stress, whatever it's sources, to your own.
