Psychedelics are nothing like a typical psychotropic drug that changes your mood by acting on neurotransmitters. They will mercilessly dredge up traumas and fears and force you to confront them, and if you're comfortable with that then the experience will be deeply cathartic. Those clinical trials are carefully managed, including the setting, facilitators, and subjects. I do think mushrooms helped my depression more than anything else, but I wouldn't recommend them without extensive preparation.
