Pseudo-cidal is a word referencing the over use of the word "suicidal" for individuals who claim they are suicidal when there is no clinical evidence of suicidal thoughts/history/severe depression or when individuals will claim they are suicidal to gain an psychiatric inpatient admission for housing/food, and/or use the statement that they are suicidal when they are drunk/high and retract their suicidality once sober.
