PER CURIAM

Appellant in this mental commitment case appeals a judgment committing him to the Mental Health Division for treatment for a period of time not to exceed 180 days. ORS 426.130. The trial court found that appellant suffers from a mental disorder, is dangerous to himself, and is unable to provide for his basic personal needs. A discussion of the facts would be of no benefit to the bench and bar. The state concedes that the record lacks clear and convincing evidence that defendant's mental illness causes him to be dangerous to himself or unable to provide for his basic personal needs. We find the state's concession to be well-founded and accept it.

Reversed.
