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 and is dangerous to himself and 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 does not contain clear and convincing evidence that appellant met the statutory definition of a "mentally ill person" who was a danger to himself or unable to provide for his basic personal needs. We find the state's concession to be well-founded and therefore accept it.

Reversed.
