MHES operates an emergency crisis line where nurses assist callers in crisis, provide information pertaining to resources and triage situations to the appropriate resources.

While they may dispatch ambulance or police as required, MHES also operates hand-in-hand with Car 87, a team of a Vancouver Police constable with a registered nurse or registered psychiatric nurse to provide on-site assessments and intervention for people with psychiatric problems. They work as a team in assessing, managing and deciding about the most appropriate action.
