The purpose of this study was to compare the perceptions of racial discrimination (PRD) among all ethnic group members and to investigate if these perceptions had an impact on student’s mental health and academic factors. Results indicated that the more one identifies with their ethnicity, the less one experiences PRD, internalized racism, and poor mental health. As counselors, it is imperative to understand how racism impacts the identity development of diverse client populations.
