Although those mushrooms aren't edible, they don't do anything unless they are consumed directly. Simply, touching or picking the mushroom is not harmful. You would have to consume it, directly, for any harm to come from poisoning.

They are helping your soil by crowding out competition that will rot your plant.

In this particular case, they are a sign that they soil is staying wet for too long (Not in all cases, but this case, definitely). I would try and make sure the soil dries out between watering if possible.
