Does my mom have schizoprenia?

Patient

Q: Does my mom have schizoprenia?

She's delusional and paranoid.
She's been unemployed for a long time and she has no friends.
She can not make friends. She thinks all people are bad and out to harm her.
She thinks there's cameras on tv screen and they're watching her.
She thinks people are using her even though she doesn't talk to anyone.
She makes things up and gets angry at my father and curses a lot.
She saw my sister on tv when nothing was there.
She believes her delusions, haluccinations and false thoughts are real.

Is this schizoprenia or whatever it's called. What'a her problem?
