You can read Dr Malie Coyne’s blog on why it’s so important to surround yourself with ‘warm people’ and how a smile can be a source of someone else’s joy and a source of your own.

Martin Rogan, CEO of Mental Health Ireland said: “Let’s encourage everyone to get involved on Tuesday 5th March. Every smile invites another one in

return so this Pancake Tuesday we’d like you to have some fun making your pancake smile with family, friends or colleagues”.
