Sarah Adell serves as the Director of Marketing and Communications at Psych Hub. In her role, she oversees the marketing team in the development and execution of strategic communication plans including digital, social and thought leadership, articulating the company’s mission and mental health resources available to Psych Hub’s audiences and partners.
Prior to joining Psych Hub, Sarah held multiple public relations and digital marketing positions with increasing scope and scale throughout HCA Healthcare, such as TriStar Hendersonville Medical Center, TriStar Skyline Medical Center, TriStar Centennial Medical Center, HCA TriStar Division and most recently, marketing manager at Parallon. During her tenure, she had facilitated hundreds of news segments online and on television, conceptualized and launched multi-million-dollar, multi-market hospital and provider campaigns and planned executive-level leadership events.
Sarah is an alumna of the University of Illinois where she received her undergraduate degree in advertising with a concentration in public relations. Additionally, she completed her MBA in healthcare administration.
In her spare time, Sarah serves on boards or volunteers for local Nashville non-profit organizations such as the Nashville Young Leaders Council, Healthcare Financial Management Association Tennessee Chapter, and Musicians on Call. She enjoys all things outdoors including running, paddleboarding, hiking, gardening, traveling, and spending time with her fiancé and their Frenchie.
Mental health education is personal for Sarah. At age 16, she lost one of her best friends to suicide, and in her early 20s, her uncle. Having worked at psychiatric hospitals, she was most fulfilled educating the community on inpatient and outpatient mental health treatment programs, or how to respond to crisis. She says “I cannot overstress the importance of asking for help or talking candidly about struggling with a mental or behavioral health concern. Sometimes, it’s a cumulation of things that build-up, and as a leader, it’s imperative to recognize symptoms, be supportive, listen, and encourage individuals to seek professional help.”
