James Casling's 15th birthday should have been a day of celebration. Instead, it was the day his father took his own life.
One moment he was alive, the next he wasn't. I was hurt - I'm still hurt now - but when he first did it I was like 'How could he do it to me? What did I do wrong? Why couldn't I have saved him?
Soon James too began having dark thoughts - attempting suicide on several occasions.
James was sectioned and taken to hospital. One morning he was asked if he wanted to play football and it changed his life.
[Football gave me] my life. If I didn't have football I wouldn't be here today because it gave me something to live for - something to strive to be good at. At the time I thought I was worthless and that my family would be better off without me.
James says football allowed him to confront his darkest thoughts and stay alive.
