Despite some laughable winners of this (see Caitlyn Jenner), there’s no question Love is a solid pick. Few people have been more up about mental health than he has.
It’s one of the most powerful articles the site as ever published.

On top of all of that, Love has been very open giving interviews about his struggles and he’s used his huge platform to help remove the stigma around mental health.
All the way around, I think we can agree giving Love the award is a solid move. It’s important we help people who need help get it.
Love has played a huge part in doing that, and he should be applauded for it.
