National Board of Directors
2010-2017

Ron Morton Ron Morton

Ron Morton is a member on the NAMI Board of Directors and director of recovery and resiliency at ValueOptions in Knoxville, Tenn. Mr. Morton was previously the director of recovery services at Peninsula Behavioral Health Services.

Mr. Morton found that the spirit and goals of NAMI matched his own. He would like NAMI to focus on the prevention of child abuse as a causative factor for mental illness. He would also like NAMI to involve more active duty members of the military.

Ron Morton was instrumental in the creation of the National Council of Urban Indian Health and its first president. He is in his second three-year term on the Mayor’s Council for Disability Issues in Knoxville. He is a member of the Psi Chi Psychological Academic Honor Society and the Society of Indian Psychologists. He is the author of “Treatment of Native Americans in an Urban Setting,” published in Innovations in Clinical Practice.

Ron Morton earned his B.S. at the National University in San Diego, his M.S. at United States International University and his Ph.D. at the California School of Professional Psychology. He is a member of NAMI Knoxville.
