Yes, you were told right as you can see in the examples below:


1 worried about something

Concerned parents held a meeting to discuss the issue.

2 [NEVER BEFORE NOUN] involved in something, or affected by something

I suggest you have a quick word with the person concerned. It was a difficult time for all concerned (=for everyone who was involved).

They are definitely NOT the same.
