Live STRIDE Training with Comprehensive Life Resources, Kaiser Permanente Center for Health Research

This live training on the STRIDE Group Facilitator curriculum is offered over 2 days, from 9:00am-1:00pm Pacific. This training is by invitation-only for a specific cohort.


This training is part of a partnership with Comprehensive Life Resources and Kaiser Permanente's Center for Health Research to deliver the STRIDE curriculum developed by Kaiser Permanente to a specific cohort.


This comprehensive implementation project includes:

  • Participants taking the e-primer "Empowering Wellness in Mental Health: Helping People with their Lifestyle Changes," developed by the Northwest MHTTC with Kaiser Permanente's Center for Health Research
  • Participants receiving 2 days of live training on the STRIDE Group Facilitator curriculum
  • Participants subsequently will lead STRIDE groups at Comprehensive Life Resources  
  • Participants will receive post-training coaching at Comprehensive Life Resources to support the new STRIDE groups


After the event, a STRIDE Curriculum Package was created to collect learning materials, taking participants through the training to enable them to facilitate group sessions.

Bobbi Jo Yarborough, PsyD 

Bobbi Jo Yarborough is a clinical psychologist and health services researcher who works to improve care and outcomes among individuals with serious mental illnesses and/or substance use disorders. Dr. Yarborough has been the principal investigator or co-investigator on more than a dozen research contracts or grants funded by the National Institutes of Health and FDA. Her portfolio includes studies of adolescent and adult depression treatment, suicide prevention, eating disorders treatment, lifestyle change among people with serious mental illnesses, first-episode psychosis, recovery from serious mental illnesses, dual recovery among people with mental illnesses and substance problems, opioid use and associated risks, and preferences for opioid agonist treatment. These include large observational studies, multisite randomized controlled trials, qualitative and mixed methods studies, and implementation and process evaluations. In the wake of what has been called our nation’s opioid crisis, Dr. Yarborough has dedicated her research to better understanding who is at risk for opioid-related harms. One large study will estimate the incidence of opioid misuse, abuse, and addiction among individuals prescribed opioids for chronic pain, and the risk factors associated with these outcomes; another study focuses on the incidence and predictors of opioid overdose and death. Additionally, a multisite study focuses on quantifying the magnitude of post-deprescribing overdoses, suicide attempts, and suicide deaths, and which patients are most vulnerable. Dr. Yarborough is a member of the Mental Health Research Network, funded by the National Institute of Mental Health, a consortium of research centers within 13 large health systems across the United States, including Kaiser Permanente Northwest. She is also the site principal investigator for the Health Systems Node of the National Institute on Drug Abuse Clinical Trials Network.
