            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Polk County, David Porter, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Tabor, P.J., and Mullins and Schumacher, JJ.  Opinion by Mullins, J.  (6 pages)

            T.M. appeals an order for his involuntary hospitalization, challenging the sufficiency of the evidence supporting the court’s conclusion he is seriously mentally impaired.  OPINION HOLDS: On our review, we find no serious or substantial doubts about the correctness of the district court’s conclusion drawn from the evidence that T.M. was seriously mentally impaired within the meaning of Iowa Code section 229.1(20) (2019).  As such, we affirm.
