About Maryann Davis

Dr. Maryann Davis is an internationally recognized expert on services for transition age youth and young adults with serious mental health conditions. Her focus is on improving treatments and services for this population that help support the development of adult role functioning during the transition from adolescence to mature adulthood. She has examined the ways in which policies and practices support or impeded the healthy development of this unique age group. Dr. Davis’ work also emphasizes the development of evidence-based interventions that improve this population’s transition into adulthood, including facilitation of mental health and related treatment, and interventions that reduce criminal behavior and substance abuse while supporting the successful completion of education and training, and movement into mature work lives.
