'Operation Transformation' psychologist Dr Eddie Murphy, pictured right, is running for the Seanad on a mental health and well-being platform.
The practising clinical psychologist and new columnist with 'Weekend' in the Irish Independent says he understands the negative impact of the lack of services and vision for children and adults with mental health difficulties, autism and disabilities, their families and our communities.
"I will bring a passionate focus and work for change for inequalities associated with mental health and disabilities and promote well-being for all.
"I will scrutinise all legislation through a well-being and positive health impact framework.
"As a trusted, progressive and strong voice for mental health and well-being in Ireland, I will seek the support of NUI graduates," he said.
