Between 1993 and 1996, she received training in Family Therapy at the Department of Family Studies, University of Pennsylvania and was a Visiting Scholar at the Bipolar Disorders Unit in the same university. In 1998, she was awarded a British Chevening Scholarship to study at the University of Leeds where she obtained a Masters in Public Health, with Distinction, in 1999 receiving the John Griffiths Prize.  She joined the faculty of the University of Ibadan in 1997 and was promoted to the grade of professor on October 1, 2008, becoming the first female Professor of Psychiatry in Nigeria.

From 2011 to 2020, Olayinka was pioneer director of the University’s MacArthur Foundation-funded Centre for Child and Adolescent Mental Health, a multidisciplinary centre for advocacy, training, research and service in child and adolescent mental health. The rich diversity of CCAMH extends to over 130 graduates so far, drawn from 14 countries in sub-Saharan Africa, who completed a Master of Science degree programme in CAMH (MSc. CAMH). She was President of the International Association for Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and Allied Professions (IACAPAP) from 2010 to 2014, the only African to have held this position since the organization with chapters in more than 70 countries was founded in 1937. She received the African Leadership award in Child and Adolescent Mental Health (2019) from the African Association for Child and Adolescent Mental Health (AACAMH), the International Contribution Award from IACAPAP (2020) and the World Psychiatric Association Honorary Membership award (2020).

She has published over 130 journal articles and book chapters.

She assumed office as the first female Provost of the College of Medicine, University of Ibadan (CoMUI) on 1 August 2020 for a four-year term.

Area of Specialization

Majority (75%) of Professor Omigbodun’s publications are in the field of Child and Youth Psychiatry and Mental Health. The early part of her research work was conducted at the different facets of healthcare for Children and Youth in Nigeria. The first large scale study of the prevalence and pattern of psychopathology in children attending a Nigerian primary care setting was researched into. She also carried out studies on the mental health of children and adolescents in schools. The results from these studies provide a foundation for interventions in schools. She has also researched into psychological interventions for children and adolescents with mental disorders and carried out anti-stigma interventions in schools. Women’s Mental Health and especially the psychological experiences surrounding Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) have also been researched into.

Funder: UK Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO)
Brief Summary: The SUCCEED Africa project is about co-producing the design and evaluation of community-based interventions for people living with psychosis in Africa. This is a 6-year research programme consortium grant to build evidence on “What Works” for psychosocial disabilities in four countries (Nigeria, Sierra Leone, Zimbabwe and Malawi). The programme, which began in May 2020 has three distinct work streams; Research, Capacity-building and Uptake. The aim is to develop an evidence-based package of multi-sectoral care and support (“enhanced CBR”) for people with psychosocial disabilities that is feasible, acceptable and appropriate for low-resource, community-based settings. Another aim is to generate new knowledge on co-production for mental health research in LMICs by modelling best practice in disability inclusion, addressing attitudinal barriers among key stakeholders, and building the capacity of “experts by experience” to engage meaningfully in mental health research and policy.

Other Interest/Hobbies

I enjoy singing, dancing and playing the guitar. I worked with my family (husband and children) and together we produced two CDs based on songs in Yoruba language composed by my husband, Professor Akinyinka Omigbodun (a former Provost of the College of Medicine, University of Ibadan, a former President of the West African College of Surgeons) and songs in English composed by my son, Akinyinka Omigbodun PhD. I also composed three children’s songs which are included in one of the CDs. Together with my daughter Iyeyinka we all sang together on the first CD titled, “Love Never fails”, and her husband Dr. Kwabena Kusi-Mensah joined in singing along for the second CD production titled, ALAAFIA.

I also co-authored a book titled: “A Gift of Sequins: Letters to My wife” https://www.facebook.com/BooksellersNG/posts/a-gift-of-sequins-letters-to-my-wife-by-victor-banjo-and-olayinka-omigbodun-is-a/1611071132485663/ with my father, Lieutenant Colonel Victor Adebukunola Banjo (1930 – 1967). This book consists of his prison letters written to my mother, Mrs Taiwo Joyce Banjo nee George. I wrote a prologue and epilogue to put the letters in context. This book was published in 2007, forty years after my father died.

I am the Superintendent of the Children’s Department at my local Church where I enjoy teaching children to sing.
