Welcome

Welcome to this easy-to-use training web site for mandated reporters of child abuse and neglect in the state of Michigan.

If you’re a mandated reporter, you have a chance to make the world a much better place, one child at a time. This course explains:

  • Why it’s so important to report
  • How to spot abuse and neglect
  • When to report it

  • What happens after a report is filed

Thank you for helping abused and neglected children!

In addition, there’s lots of helpful information in the three links in the right-hand column: “Make a Report,” “Law Links,” and “Definitions.”

Please start by watching the first part of Lisa’s Story.

This is Lisa. She’s a kindergarten teacher, which means that she’s a mandated reporter of suspected child abuse and neglect.

Lisa recently went through the online training you’re taking right now. It taught her how important it is to report when she sees signs of abuse or neglect in her kindergarten class.
