'Football has saved my life - without it, I wouldn't be here'

On James Casling's 15th birthday, his father killed himself. James tried to take his own life on multiple occasions in the following years.

It was only after playing football with Queens Park Rangers' mental health team that he wanted to live again.

Now, with the BBC's Victoria Derbyshire programme, James has been to train with three of the QPR first team.

Watch the Victoria Derbyshire programme on weekdays between 09:00 BST and 11:00 on BBC Two and the BBC News Channel.

Find out how you can get into football with the BBC Get Inspired guide.
