The RTS Bot stands for Real Time Support Bot, and provides on-demand mental health/crisis resources. It has a library of resources available to individuals when they need it most, and can be accessed via Twitch and Discord.
To invite the RTS bot to your Discord server, this invite link will allow server admins the ability to add the bot to servers they manage.
After the bot joins, you will need to make sure the bot's role has been granted permission to the channel(s) where you want users to have access to use commands.
We suggest setting up a special channel for individuals to have a dedicated space to gather resources.
