Reporting Suspected
Child Abuse

Child abuse and neglect rarely stop without help from outside the immediate family. Reporting abuse or neglect can protect a child and get help for a family. It may even save a child's life.

In every state, mandated reporters are required by law to identify themselves when reporting. These include health practitioners, lawyers, clergy, film processors, mental health professionals, social workers, teachers, day care workers, and law enforcement personnel. In fact, all citizens are mandated by law to report suspected child abuse and neglect. You can make a report without giving your name. If you have reason to believe a child or adolescent has been or may be harmed, you must report it.
