We all have a shared responsibility to prevent suicide. That responsibility extends to the corporate and business world. All of our members are committed to helping prevent suicide and sign up to the Consortium Covenant. We only accept compassionate and socially responsible organisations into the Consortium.

The benefits of the corporate and business world, such as innovation, scalability and resources, must be put towards resolving the social issue of suicide. The Consortium exists to enable this. Its aim is to inform and inspire change by creating a shared responsibility for suicide prevention. Working closely with our members across different industries, our aim is to unlock innovation and resources in the corporate world, and convene partners in the public and third sectors to tackle the epidemic of suicide.
