My girlfriend recently found out who her birth mother is and that she's in jail. This has sent my gf into a tail spin and she can't talk or think about anyone else. I'm not sure how to help her.

You can't. You are not trained to handle that, and you are too close. The best thing you can do is to get her professional help. This is a traumatic experience for her and needs to be handled very delicately by someone who understands trauma.
