Angelina Hudson

Angelina Brown Hudson, MPA is the Executive Director of NAMI Greater Houston. In this position, Hudson determines and executes strategic initiatives, collaborations, and partnerships to improve services, resources, treatment, care, and recovery outcomes of people with mental illnesses in Greater Houston—an area that encompasses Harris, Fort Bend, and Montgomery counties.

An organization executive leader since 2011, and a mental health advocate, spokesperson, and trainer on the local, state, and national levels for more than two decades, Hudson has targeted much of her focus on earlier identification of those facing a mental health condition; removing barriers to mental health services and supports; de-criminalizing those living with mental health conditions by encouraging appropriate treatment options; and connecting adults disabled by their mental health diagnosis to supported-employment opportunities, cross-training, and entrepreneurial development.
