General Peter Chiarelli, United States Army (Retired)
General Peter Chiarelli, USA (Ret.) was appointed the Chief Executive Officer of One Mind for Research in 2012. He is a retired General with 40 years of experience designing and implementing American defense policy for the U.S. Army and Department of Defense in peace and during combat operations.
As the 32nd Vice Chief of Staff in the Army, Chiarelli was responsible for the day-to-day operations of the Army and its 1.1 million active and reserve soldiers. This included the Army's research, development and execution of studies followed by the implementation of recommendations related to the Army's behavioral health programs, specifically its Health Promotion, Risk Reduction and Suicide Prevention Program.
As commander of the Multi-National Corps-Iraq, Chiarelli coordinated the actions of all four military services and was responsible for the day-to-day combat operations of more than 147,000 U.S. and Coalition troops. He was also the Senior Military Assistant to the Secretary of Defense from March 2007 to August 2008. Chiarelli pioneered efforts to restore government, economic stability and essential services during two tours in Iraq; exercised command and control of combat operations; and trained, prepared and mobilized reserve forces for critical response operations. He retired from the Army in 2012 after almost 40 years of service.
As the CEO of One Mind for Research, Chiarelli continues his advocacy for eliminating the stigma associated with Service Members and Veterans seeking and receiving the assistance they need for the treatment of the invisible wounds of war: Post-Traumatic Stress (PTS), and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). Co-founded by former Congressman Patrick Kennedy and mental health advocate Garen Staglin, One Mind for Research (currently a division of IMHRO) is an independent, non-profit organization bringing together health care providers, researchers, academics and the health care industry--on a global scale--with the goal to rapidly develop new treatments and cures for all illnesses and disorders of the brain.
Chiarelli holds a Bachelor of Science degree in political science from Seattle University; a Master of Public Administration degree from the Daniel J. Evans School of Public Affairs at the University of Washington; and a Master of Arts degree in national security strategy from Salve Regina University. He is also a graduate of the U.S. Naval Command and Staff College and the National War College.
