What should I do if I suspect child abuse or neglect?

It is extremely important to report it to the authorities if you suspect that a child is being abused or neglected. Reporting your suspicions may protect him or her and get help for the family. Any concerned person can report suspicions of child abuse or neglect. Reporting your concerns is not making an accusation; rather, it is a request for an investigation and assessment to determine if help is needed.
