FAQ

I want to talk to someone. How does this work?

It’s easy to use our free and confidential services.

  • Call us at 952/988-TEEN (8336). A counselor will return your call by the next business day. Please speak clearly. Leave your name and a phone number where we can reach you.
  • We’ll set up a place and time to meet. The counselor will meet you at the location most comfortable to you – school, our offices, a coffee shop or at your home.
Is the information I share with you confidential?

 It depends. The law says that you have the right to talk confidentially to an adult about things like chemical use and sexuality issues. We are required by law to report suicidal plans or threats to others.  We’re here to listen to what’s on your mind. After talking to us, we generally encourage you to talk with your parents. It can be hard—we’re happy to be part of the conversation, if you want us there—but many times, young adults tell us they are relieved when they finally tell their parents about their problems.

Will you tell someone at school?

Since we meet many youth at school, we must tell a counselor or social worker there that we are seeing you. We don't tell them the specifics of what we talk about.

Can other people sign me up for meetings?

Yes. Sometimes someone from your school will call and tell us that you might like to talk to one of our counselors. Many times, a parent calls us to talk through some parenting challenges. However, it is your decision to choose to talk to us.

Is MoveFwd just for teenagers?
We're here to help young people ages 12-24 and/or their families.
Who will I talk to at MoveFwd?
