Mandated Reporter Requirements

Maine law requires that certain professionals, including licensed health professionals, who suspect child abuse and neglect and who suspect abuse, neglect or exploitation of an incapacitated or dependent adult report to the Maine Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS). Maine law also requires that certain professionals, including licensed health professionals, obtain mandated reporter training once every four years. Additional resources and information specific to the mandated reporting laws and mandated reporter training required and offered by DHHS can be found here.

Please note that the modules provided by the State of Maine DHHS satisfy the requirements for licensure.
