Brief description of the results/findings On a positive side we can conclude following: • Need to speak out and care for the mental health was quickly recognized • There was a high level of solidarity and certain vulnerable social groups were involved as helpers (eg migrants and refugees). However from the point of inadequate resilience capacities, there is a lack of focus on the future and there is a risk of potential stigmatization of the city as a disaster-stricken city
