Wellbeing groups are small groups of up to 10 people that engage in guided conversations about how YOU are doing: In work, in relationships at work, and in life as it relates to your stress and work/life balance. The groups include time for learning from each other. Presenters will share Alia’s wellbeing curriculum.


  • Do you find that your workplace satisfaction could use a boost?
  • Do you feel like your personal relationships, or mental health are suffering due to workplace stress?
  • Are you doing fine, but want to learn new ways to care for yourself?
  • Do you have something you want to talk about?
  • Do you feel like you would like to get more joy out of life?


Presenters: Tyler Reitzner and Jasmine Grika, MSW
