ARC Health, a group of mental healthcare practices and a Thurston Group portfolio company, has acquired the Lilac Center, a mental healthcare provider group with four locations in Kansas and Missouri.

Founded in 2000 by Amy Tibbitts and Tony Tibbitts, the Lilac Center offers a range of psychological services with a dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) focus, serving the greater Kansas City metro and surrounding areas. The Lilac Center works to help those who suffer with childhood trauma, post-traumatic stress disorder, suicidal thoughts, addictions and relationship issues as well as those who are diagnosed with borderline personality disorder.

“ARC Health’s support allows us to further strengthen the quality services we provide, enhance professional development opportunities for staff, and expand our mission in helping those who suffer with borderline personality disorder,” says Amy Tibbitts.
