Jesslyn Jamison, PhD is a postdoctoral fellow working at the Penn Center for Mental Health under the mentorship of Dr. Emily Becker-Haimes. Her research focuses on determining how to best transport evidence-based practices (EBPs) in mental health into community settings. She is also interested in using peer-to-peer models for parents of children with mental health needs to increase the reach of mental health services and has studied the impact of several peer-to-peer interventions for caregivers of children with a range of mental health needs. As a fellow, she primarily contributes to two ongoing studies related to the implementation of evidence-based interventions in community settings. Dr. Jamison also has substantial experience working across a range of clinical settings including hospitals, schools, and primary care clinics, and aims to bring this perspective into her research. Dr. Jamison received her PhD at the University of Texas at Austin in their School Psychology Program and completed her predoctoral internship at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.
