Usability & users with mental health issues anddisorders

I would make sure that the content was easy to read. Look into
readability metrics just as a quick way of checking that language is not
too complex. Text to be read by most adults should score between 60-70
on the Flesch Reading Ease Score (FRES). This can be calculated by
Microsoft Word (Tools->Options->Spelling & Grammar->Show Readability
Statistics in most versions) or by any number of free tools and web
sites. Note that readability statistics are just a crude check.

Usability & users with mental health issues and disorders

I'm in the definition phase of a site redesign for a mental health
and addiction association and rehab center. Besides following the W3C
standards in accessibility are there any guidelines or best practices
I should consider for users that suffer from more emotionally charged
or cognitive issues than physical limitations. Maybe there are
considerations for colour, layout, presentation of content etc.
