Some observations

1) The landlord's mental illness is unfortunate, but basically irrelevant to your tenancy. I wouldn't get involved with his family, despite any friendship you may have with them, other than perhaps to refer them to a mental-health advocacy organization.

2) If you're a month to month tenant and you've been served 30 days notice, you must leave by that date. Staying longer is called "illegal holdover" and can result in your being evicted, getting judgements entered against you, bad notations on your credit report, and all-around hassles.

3) Given the irrational behavior of the landlord, I don't think staying is much of an option anyway.

4) In the future get a lease and look for professionally managed buildings. Without a lease, a landlord can tell you to leave on 30 days notice ... this being (in)convenient for you is irrelevant, legally speaking.
