PER CURIAM

In this civil commitment case, the trial court found that appellant suffers from a mental disorder and, because of that disorder, is unable to provide for his basic needs.  On appeal, appellant contends that the record does not contain sufficient evidence to support the order of involuntary commitment.  The state concedes the insufficiency of the evidence.  On de novo review, we agree that the evidence is insufficient.

Reversed.
