Well as you know Gardevoir doesn't really have a good Defense stat and Reflect can cope with that.

However Calm Mind increases Gardevoir's Special Attack and Special Defense which he's good in, and it can help in taking down the opponent's Pokémon.

Calm Mind, all the way.

Gardevoir has excellent SpD (115) and even better SpA (125), having a move to boost both of those stats is important, plus Gardevoir's role isnt setting up screens, it's a bulk-ish special sweeper.
Also, Gardevoir's Def stat is so low you just simply dont send it against Physical attackers, unless you know you'll outspeed and OHKO.
If you want a good screen-setter, use this Clefable:

Clefable @ Leftovers
Ability: Unaware
EVs: 252 HP / 4 SpA / 252 SpD
Calm Nature
- Reflect
- Light Screen
- Soft-Boiled
- Moonblast
