Glass replacement companies (like you would go to for a broken window) install mirrors and can do this for you. Can take it off if really loose and resecure it with adhesive, or to avoid underlying drywall damage can just put mirror mounting clips or rails around it, fastened through the wall to replace what is probably glue behind it. The latter avoids the risk of breaking the mirror trying to peel it the rest of the way off, and what I recommend.


Alternatively for appearance if desired, a Carpenter - Woodworking or similar person could install a rabbeted (offset edge) wood frame around it, fastened to the wall.


IF you are a DIY person, google for how much your thickness and size of mirror weighs, then go conservAtive and buy mirror mounting clips or strips at home improvement store or home depot or suc. For a full-height mirror I would not recommend plastic - get metal ones, get enough (they are cheap) for full weight across bottom and then say one every 2 feet or so along the sides and top to prevent tilting. Be sure clip capacity matches your mirror thickness.
