MFLC Support

Schools with significant military-connected student populations offer Child and Youth Behavioral Military Family Life Counselor (CYB-MFLC) support in partnership with Fort Bragg. CYB-MFLCs are not Moore County School employees but are contracted through Fort Bragg Child and Youth Services (CYS).


Due to the COVID-19 worldwide pandemic, MFLCs and Child and Youth Behavioral MFLCs (CYB-MFLCs) will be able to temporarily provide VTC (Video Teleconference) services to your military community. These services include video non-medical counseling in areas where face-to-face support is restricted due to COVID-19. Services will be delivered in the following manner:


Support for Adults:


• Video non-medical counseling


Support for Children and Youth:


• Individual video non-medical counseling sessions for minors age 13 to 17 (parent or guardian must be available at the start of each video session to give parental consent and provide line of sight requirements)


• Family video non-medical counseling for minors 6 to 12 years of age (parent or guardian must attend each session)


Child and Youth Behavioral Military and Family Life Counselors (CYB-MFLC)


Child and Youth Behavioral Military and Family Life Counselors (CYB-MFLC) provide support to military children for a variety of issues, including low self-esteem, behavioral problems and changes at home. These counselors, who are part of the Military and Family Life Counseling Program, understand the issues military children face and can be especially helpful during challenging periods, including deployments and PCS moves. CYB-MFLCs in Moore County Schools offer students one-on-one and small group support on designated campuses. 


The licensed counselors in the CYB-MFLC Program address:


  • Self-esteem issues

  • Communication and relationships at home and school

  • Life skills, such as problem solving and adjustment

  • Behavioral issues, including bullying and anger management

  • Changes at home, such as deployment, reunion, divorce and grief


Conversations in these sessions stay between your child and his or her counselor. Services are private and confidential with the exception of child abuse/neglect, domestic abuse and other duty-to-warn situations. 


Eligibility

As long as a parent, step-parent, or guardian is an active-duty, National Guard or reserve service member or a designated Department of Defense civilian, your child is eligible. Surviving children are also eligible to participate in school based group support and one-on-one services. Please contact your school’s CYB-MFLC to complete a permission form.
