Spider-Man Spider-Verse Short Film: Kevin Love Fund Explains Partnership

Kevin Love, of the Miami Heat, reminds himself every day that “Everyone is going through something that we can’t see.”

By supporting the Kevin Love Fund, you are joining Kevin in the fight to prioritize mental wellness alongside physical health. Together, you will impact lives and spread the word that “…no matter how big or small it seems to you… you’re not weird or different for sharing what you’re going through.”

The Kevin Love Fund strives to inspire people to live their healthiest lives while providing the tools to achieve physical and emotional well being.

After publicly sharing his own battle with anxiety and depression, Kevin became committed to normalizing the conversation around mental health, opening up the public discussion and empowering people to pursue mental wellness with the same vigor as they do physical health.

Early beneficiaries of the Kevin Love Fund include Bring Change to Mind, created to end the stigma and discrimination around mental health by empowering young people in high school and college; the Just Keep Livin’ Foundation, founded by Matthew and Camila McConaughey to empower high school students to lead more active lives and make healthy choices; and the UCLA Athletics Department, which influenced Love heavily during his time there as a student and athlete. Additional partners include the Chris Paul Family Foundation, the Hispanic Federation, the UCLA School of Psychology, The Obama Foundation, My Brothers Keeper Alliance,  and Headspace.

The Kevin Love Fund has also aligned with the meditation and mindfulness app Headspace as a strategic partner to support their vision of improving the health and happiness of the world. Together, the two have already provided student-athletes at UCLA with year-long subscriptions to the app to incorporate into their training regimens. Additional information is available from the UCLA Depression Grand Challenge Leadership team.

Sony Pictures Animation has teamed up with the Kevin Love Fund to digitally release the animated short film, The Spider Within: A Spider-Verse Story, that will be incorporated into the Kevin Love Fund’s new mental health focused lesson plan, “The Hero Within.” The lesson plan invites students to tell their own story through the lens of mental health awareness via an interactive curriculum including a creative storyboard activity.
