Walker marks Mental Health Awareness Week with PUMA and CALM

Walker marks Mental Health Awareness Week with PUMA and CALM
Kyle Walker has partnered with PUMA, EA SPORTS FIFA, and suicide prevention charity, Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM), to release a limited-edition home and away kit to mark Mental Health Awareness Week.

The kits have been designed by our man to help open the conversation around mental health and challenge the stereotypes that prevent people seeking the help they need.

The home kit design reflects every stage of Walker’s football career; documenting the highs and the lows of life as an international football.

The away kit design is a vivid demonstration of the challenges surrounding poor mental health.

Key statistics and phrases are included across the kit highlighting that 125 people die by suicide every week in the UK, with 75% of those being male.

Alongside this, the kit champions CALM’s message that ‘life is always worth living’.

Walker said: “Everyone can suffer from the effects of mental ill health, but football can help because football is about being part of something. From when I was playing as a kid in Sheffield to now playing with Manchester City and England, the feeling has remained the same.

“When that whistle blows for kick-off nothing else matters; not your stress, not your relationships, not your worries. Partnering with CALM, PUMA and EA SPORTS to create these kits is a reminder that no matter what you’re going through, there’s always hope and always someone to lean on.”

The kits are available to purchase through PUMA.
