Being shot isn't the only health issue Tom has experienced at work. He was signed off from his job for three months in 2018 following a breakdown.
Tom revealed to the Daily Mail that Prince William and Harry's campaign to remove the stigma surrounding mental illness prompted him to go the extended leave.
"I later told them, 'This made a big difference to me personally; the things you said made it easier for me to say to my employer, 'Look I'm not well, I need to take three months off,'" he shared. "Before that, I genuinely thought, I cannot not go into work because of a mental health issue, that's ridiculous."
