National Mandated Reporter Survey

The Center for the Study of Social Policy (CSSP), with funding support from the Annie E. Casey Foundation, is launching a survey to hear directly from mandated reporters about their experiences, challenges, and current reporting practices.

About the Survey

CSSP seeks social workers, teachers, early childhood educators, doctors, nurses — anyone required by law to report suspected child abuse and/or neglect — to submit feedback. Survey data will help inform the development of a toolkit that supports mandated reporters in re-imagining their roles as “mandated supporters,” connecting families with concrete resources in times of need.

Survey responses will be anonymous and confidential. Survey participants will be able to enter a raffle to win a $50 gift e-card. The survey should take about 15 minutes to complete, and the deadline is June 5, 2023.
