RTS's target audiences are the low-income black-brown or African American community, those individuals, and family members with mental illness, (especially bipolar disorder, and schizophrenia, and other highly stigmatized mental illnesses). In addition, we serve Individuals who have lost a loved one(s) who have died by suicide, the person(s) who have survived a suicide attempt, and someone who feels hopeless and is considering suicide.
