Also, double-post since I ran out of characters and think this is a particularly important point:

Seren isn't "prone to psychosis" or "off her rocker" just because she had a grief-fueled tantrum at the end of Children of Mah.

I say this as someone who has gone through losing loved ones and has sat down and cared for friends who were grieving loved ones.

Fact of the matter is, Seren was grieving - in the middle of being told that she was a monster for all she did trying to keep her 'mother' alive and after ending up being the one to kill her and end her suffering.

Imagine being told to your face that you were twisted for wanting to keep a loved one - that you had a complicated history with, even - alive. And then having it rubbed in your face that you were the one who killed that loved one in the end. Wouldn't you fucking scream?

At the moment of Mah's death, Seren was lashing out and blaming Zaros before Zamorak interrupted with his revelation and began berating her. But if you speak to Seren after the fact, she does take acknowledgement that Mah is dead at her hand, but that it is still not a good thing that Zaros reaped what he did from their mother.

To be honest, and this is a bit of a gripe about the real world, it disgusts me that so many people run their mouths and shit-talk that moment she had, because it is by far one of the most human things that Jagex has ever written for a character.

But of course that's glossed over, because the western world has a hard-on for ignoring grief and the consequences of death. If even full-grown adults can't be assed to face those things with a healthy perspective, why would teenagers and children bother to the same - even when (god forbid) they face those issues growing up?

I digress,
tl;dr
: Seren was grieving, not insane, don't be a dick even if her 'mother' was a monster inimical to the concept of life.

Seems like you have a lot to say on this topic. Since this thread was necro'd I don't think anyone would mind if you veered off topic a little longer and shared a bit more. Why not tell us what a healthy perspective looks like, and why it is antecedently healthy?
