Teaching

At the Undergraduate Level

My participation in teaching at the university level dates back to 1988 when as a first year resident in the Department of Psychiatry, University College Hospital, Ibadan, I started giving lectures in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry to medical students under the tutelage of Late Emeritus Professor M.O. Olatawura (Nigeria’s first child and adolescent psychiatrist) who was training me to take up a career in child and adolescent psychiatry. I have been involved with the teaching of medical students both at the bedside and in formal lectures since then. 

Since I was appointed lecturer in 1997, I have been involved in teaching medical students during their formal posting in psychiatry.  During the MPH course at the University of Leeds (1998-1999), I had the opportunity to take a course in ‘Training Strategies for Health Workers’.  This enabled me to learn and put into practice; newer methods of instruction that not only encourage knowledge acquisition but also promote the modification of attitudes, skills and practices.

Outside the Department of Psychiatry, I have had the opportunity to give didactic, clinical and/or practical sessions to several groups of undergraduate trainees in the University of Ibadan. The sessions and students groups are as follows:

        1. Psychology to pre-clinical students in the Faculty of Basic Medical Sciences

         2. Psychiatry to physiotherapy clinical students

         3. Child and adolescent psychiatry to medical students during their clerkship in Paediatrics

        4. Clinical sessions in child and adolescent psychiatry subspecialty clinics to medical, nursing and social work students

        5. Clinical sessions at the University of Ibadan MacArthur Foundation supported child and adolescent mental health clinic within the custodial section of the Oyo State Juvenile Justice System to health profession students in various child health related departments.

At the Postgraduate Level

As Pioneer Director of the University’s John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation funded, Centre for Child and Adolescent Mental Health (CCAMH, www.ccamh.ui.edu.ng), a multidisciplinary Centre for Training, Research and Service in Child and Adolescent Mental Health from 2013 to 2020, I had the opportunity to work with course leaders and tutors from eight faculties (Arts, Basic Sciences, Clinical Sciences, Education, Law, Pharmacy, Public Health & Social Sciences), in the University and from the continents of Africa, Asia, Europe and North America to develop a curriculum for a Master of Science degree programme in Child and Adolescent Mental Health (MSc. CAMH) and implement the take off of the Centre and the courses within. From January 2013 when the pioneer set commenced studies, to June 2020 over 130 professionals have completed the MSc. CAMH, from 14 SSA countries (Cameroon, Eritrea, Gambia, Ghana, Kenya, Liberia, Malawi, Nigeria (all 6 geopolitical zones), Rwanda, Sierra Leone, Somalia, Tanzania, Zambia and Zimbabwe. Aside from directing the daily activities of this Centre, coordinating and teaching other courses, I had coordinated the research proposal and project course when I was director. Several of these are published in peer review journals.

I also coordinated the development of the curriculum for a Postgraduate Diploma in CAMH and 20 students have completed this course while there are 5 currently in training. We now have a doctoral programme in CAMH approved by the University of Ibadan Senate. In total, 150 have trained on both the MSc. and Pg. Dip. CAMH.

I taught at the Medical University of Vienna, Unit for Postgraduate Education and Training on the module: ‘Transcultural Medicine and Diversity Care’ to Masters students in 2018.

Administration & Service Development

I served as the most junior colleague in my department from when I started work as Lecturer I in 1997 until 2006 when others joined the academic staff of the department, a period of 9 years! I had to coordinate both undergraduate and postgraduate activities in the Department.

From 1999 to the present, I have successfully overcome the challenges of starting the first child and adolescent mental health service in a teaching hospital in Nigeria. Working with several partners, I have led the establishment of a Centre of Excellence in training, research and service, the Centre for Child and Adolescent Mental Health of the University of Ibadan (CCAMH), having obtained a grant from the John D. & Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation for that purpose. I have served as pioneer Head of the Clinical Department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry from 2009 to 2016 and as Professor & Head of the academic and clinical Department of Psychiatry from 2015 to 2019.

I have served as Mental Health Specialist in charge of the University of Ibadan Mental Health

Service for staff and students over the past 10 years and I am Chair of the Counselling Committee in the College of Medicine, University of Ibadan.

In 1999, I started a clinic service tailored to meet the needs of children and adolescents with mental health problems at UCH, Ibadan, which initially became the Child and Adolescent Psychiatric Unit and eventually the Department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, the first of its kind in any tertiary training institution in Nigeria. I developed a curriculum for post fellowship sub-specialty training in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry on behalf of the National Postgraduate Medical College of Nigeria and I was privileged to supervise the first two graduates of this programme.

In line with my training in Public Health, I have formed linkages between specialized health institutions and primary care to ensure that those with the greatest need have access to care. In 2003, I initiated a mental health outreach to the children in the Ibadan Remand Home (the custodial portion of the juvenile justice system in Oyo State, Nigeria). This outreach attracted funding from the MacArthur Foundation in 2008 to expand the services being offered. By this intervention, the children at the home had their mental health needs attended to whilst their special education needs were also addressed. The Child and Adolescent Psychiatric Department at UCH also established links with the SOS Children’s Village in Owu Ijebu, Nigeria as well as the Ibadan School for Children with Disabilities. In addition to these linkages, needs assessments, anti-stigma campaigns and training for schoolteachers in the identification of mental health challenges in children and adolescents are being carried out in rural and urban schools in Oyo State.

Researches

Current Research Activities:

My research activities are focused within the area of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and Mental Health. I am engaged both in research into interventions in child and adolescent mental health and epidemiological surveys as a form of needs assessments for the development of interventions and services. Current work being done is as follows:

Research into feasible culturally appropriate Interventions in Child & Adolescent Mental Health

1. Identification and psychological treatment of common mental illnesses in adolescents

2. Designing clinical trials to test the effectiveness of culturally adapted psychological interventions – important work that is significantly lacking in the West African sub-region

3. Identifying low cost, effective, scalable, and sustainable psychological interventions to address adolescent depression, behavioural problems in children, and children with disabilities

4. Cognitive Behavioural Intervention (CBT) programme for depressed adolescents in Ibadan, Nigeria

5. Interventions to reduce distress of children and adolescents with chronic physical conditions such as sickle cell disease and epilepsy

6. Psychological Interventions for children and adolescents in especially difficult circumstances such as those within the Juvenile Justice system

7. Stigma reduction Interventions

8. Multi-level Determinants of Guardian Willingness to Utilize Accessible Mental Health Services for School Aged Children and Adolescents Living in Ibadan, Nigeria

Epidemiological Surveys and Needs Assessments

9. Impact of Maternal Mental Health on the growth and development of children

10. Psychological impact of Female Genital Cutting

11. Impact on Mental Health of children and adolescents of traumatic events (Street Children, Boko Haram, Ebola, and other traumatic events)

12. Correlates of psychiatric disorders among children and adolescents

13. Longitudinal research into the cognitive function of children with HIV/AIDS

14. Community Surveys to determine Prevalence and Correlates of disorders in several African countries
