Addressing Student Wellbeing and Behavior

Definition of Child Abuse and Neglect

Nevada law defines several types of child abuse and neglect:

  • Physical Injury: a non-accidental injury including bruises, cuts, bite marks, burns and broken bones.
  • Mental Injury: an injury to a child's intellectual, psychological or emotional condition causing impairment of a child's normal range of performance or behavior.
  • Sexual Abuse or Exploitation: any sexual activity with a child, including fondling and lewdness, or encouraging or allowing a child to view pornographic material or engage in prostitution or pornography.
  • Negligent Treatment or Maltreatment: failure to provide a child with proper care, control or supervision, food, education, shelter or medical care.

A parent or guardian is responsible for the abuse or neglect of a child if he or she causes or allows the abuse or neglect. A child is anyone under the age of 18.

  • You are a mandated reporter. If your mentee is under age 18 and you have "reasonable cause to believe" your mentee has been abused or neglected, you are required to report the suspected abuse or neglect to Washoe County Human Services no later than 24 hours after you have received the information.
