Which mirror are we talking about?

On the Tor help desk, I often distribute mirror links to individuals
who cannot access the tpo home page. I find that I usually only send
links from mirror sites that use HTTPS with CA signed SSL
certificiate. I find that if I send an email response linking to a
mirror page that requires visitors to click through a warning, I
often have to send an additional email later, expaining to the user that
the site is not compromised, although all other times they see this
warning in their browser, they should listen. 

I'm not sure if this applies to your mirror or not, but I do find
that the mirrors I send individuals to the most are those with
user-friendly HTTPS.
