  2. Preventing suicide in high-risk locations and reducing access to the means of suicide
  3. Reducing the risk of suicide, attempted suicide and self-harm among children and young people (CYP), and providing support to educational settings
  4. Monitoring and collecting data on suicide, attempted suicide and self-harm
  5. Supporting the media in delivering sensitive approaches to suicide and suicidal behaviour
