A new podcast, which aims to dismantle the stigma surrounding mental health among business leaders, has been launched.

Called Leaders in Disguise, the podcast is hosted by leadership mental health associate Gary Parsons.

It features candid interviews with prominent figures who share their personal challenges and triumphs in the realms of mental health in business leadership.

In the second episode, Lee Marples, co-founder of creative agency Think3 and former finance director at apprenticeship provider 3aaa, reveals the mental and physical challenges he has faced since the collapse of 3aaa in 2018.

He discusses the pressure that led him to retreat from public life and addresses a recent health scare that profoundly affected his wellbeing.

Lee said: “This is the most personal, open, and honest I’ve been about my life over the last few years. I’m grateful to Gary for letting me tell my own story in a positive way.”

The first episode features Gary himself, who shares his personal battle with mental health, including his experience with Bell’s Palsy at the age of 18.

The podcast is available on all major streaming platforms.
