Third Shift Blues

(asking on behalf of a friend) I'm thinking about using the ADA regulations to try to move from night shift to day shift. How would this work?

About 2 years ago, I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder and 6 months ago I took a night shift position in a veterinary lab. Working the night shift is aggravating my depression and it's making it really hard just to function on a daily basis. My job also has 1st and 2nd shift positions, but they're full right now. I really love my job except for third shift stuff, and I don't want to quit.
I'm wondering if anybody knows about the ADA process and whether this is considered a "reasonable accommodation". How do I go about requesting that they move me to first shift?
