10DD

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has adopted a new three-digit number to be used nationwide to reach the National Suicide Prevention and Mental Health Crisis Lifeline, starting July 16, 2022.   Customers must continue to dial 1-800-273-TALK (8255) until July 16, 2022.

In order for 988 to work in your area code, 10-digit dialing must first be implemented. Since your area code is 608, you will need to change the way you dial local calls.

The following 84 area codes currently permit 7-digit dialing and also use 988 as a central office code. Providers operating in these NPAs must implement 10-digit dialing. Transitioning to 10-digit dialing involves both the technical work needed to implement mandatory 10-digit dialing as well as educating consumers about the transition:
