The list includes medical care professionals, school administrators and teachers, regulated child care providers, psychologists, counselors, therapists, law enforcement officers, members of the clergy, and social workers.
A report is required when a mandated reporter has reasonable cause to suspect child abuse or neglect.

Reports must be made immediately.
