PER CURIAM

In this mental commitment case, appellant contends that the record does not contain clear and convincing evidence that she is a danger to herself because of a mental disorder.  The state concedes the insufficiency of the evidence.  On de novo review, we agree that there is insufficient evidence to support the involuntary commitment.

Reversed.
